32 weeks pregnant, excessive movement of child, jerks causing pain. Cause of concern?

I am 32 weeks pregnant with my first child. He s always been active but suddenly the last 24 hours he has been going nuts . His movement is about 10 times normal, very jerky, and painful. Could he be in distress? Stuck somehow? The cord around his neck and he s trying to get free? I m worried because it is such a rapid substantial change. YYYY@YYYY

Hello Angel84029, Thank you for using the service of Healthcare Magic. Concerning your question, an increase in the movement of your baby shouldn't be a source of worries. It actually shows that your baby is doing fine. I know your main point of concern is that, the change is rapid. I think it´s possible your baby could have moved from one position to another. Therefore you now feel the movement to be stronger and more rapid than before. However, i will recommend you visit your Obstetrician to conduct a CTG, just for the sake of reassurance.

thanks for your query.
Diminished fetal movements is always a cause for concern, but excessive fetal movements also needs investigation.
It could indicate fetal distress due to a variety of reasons such as cord entanglement, decreased amount of liquor , hypoxia etc.
Please visit your gynecologist, who would examine you, perform an ultrasound if required and guide you accordingly.
Take care.
