So I'm 15 weeks tomorrow with my 3rd child and yesterday I started getting the tightening feeling like Braxton hicks. Is this way too early??

Have you talked to your midwife? she'll probably be able to reassure you.

Totally normal. I started having them at 12 weeks - I'm very petite and was showing by then, I went to see my midwife and she confirmed it was braxton hicks. I had them a few times a day from then on up until the morning I went into labour. I didn't even know I was having contractions, I thought it was more braxton hicks until I realised my waters had broken (I thought I wet myself!!)
I'd still go see your midwife though, just to be reassured x
