In brief: 2nd or 3rd trimester
Braxton hicks contractions are most commonly felt during the 3rd trimester, though they may begin in the 2nd trimester. Dehydration can increase the amount of these contractions.
It's different for everyone, and not every pregnant woman will experience braxton hicks contractions.
