Pregnant and nursing question Update AGAIN

Final update. I finally went into triage last night and I have a urinary tract infection. So that's why I've been in so much pain. She told me the contractions will likely continue when I nurse but they won't be as bad since I won't be in constant pain anymore. I'll be going every other week now for monitoring and to make sure the infection goes away.

I'm 32 weeks pregnant nursing a twenty month old. Recently I've been noticing that the unborn flips around like crazy every time I start nursing. It's not exactly painful, but it hurts (if that makes sense) It makes it hard to breathe and is extremely uncomfortable. I know at this point breastfeeding can (theoretically at least) cause contractions, but that's not what I'm feeling. It's just like the baby gets really hyper and active. Does anybody know why this is happening or what it's called? It's gotten worse in the past few days. Today after breakfast I sat down to nurse him and as soon as he latched on I had this sharp pain the length of my hand at the base of my baby bump. It was very painful. He nursed for a few minutes and then went to the other side and I had it again. It feels nothing like contractions so I don't think it's Braxton hicks but I have no idea why I'm having these terrible pains. The unborn flips around like a maniac afterwards and makes the sensitive area even more painful. I almost started crying today. Does anybody know why this is happening?

Unborn babies tend to get more active in the last weeks when mom is holding still. And probably the production of oxytocin is adding to it.

That makes sense. It's just that there's this huge difference in activity between when I'm just sitting down and when I'm sitting and nursing. When I'm nursing the baby's movements are really uncomfortable borderline painful which just adds to the nursing aversions I've been dealing with for months.

Ha!  I say sibling rivalry.

My little one would start kicking when I was nursing.  Like she was trying to kick her little brother out of my lap.  Get off.  That's MINE!!!

Ds doesn't sit on my lap when he nurses, he sits next to me so there's no pressure on the unborn. It wasn't intentional, that's just how he's always nursed.
