Is it normal for babies to move a lot during the last weeks of pregnancy?

Hello! I'm now 35 weeks pregnant and now my baby has been moving a LOT!! it's so funny because my last 2 posts were about low fetal movement!! She is now moving all the time and it really hurts!! I can see how she moves her feet elbows and little arms. I read before that they usually decrease their movements when they are almost due, but she seems to have increased them by a 100% ..! It's that normal? Has anyone noticed that their babies also increased their movements in their last weeks?
Thank you!!!

At 35 weeks my baby was a mover and a shaker!  I could feel him much stronger because HE was much stronger-and bigger!  And he was bumping into parts I didn't much like bumped :)  But by week 40 my little guy was so wedged in there (he was 8 lb 7 oz) that he wasn't able to move quite as much.

I felt lots of movement with my son, I dont remember him ever slowing down actually, he was(and still is) very active.

I thought I was the only one who was dealing with a extremely busy baby!! I am 31 1/2 weeks and my baby has not stop moving around since I got pregnant, I'm glad to know that this is normal because I was beginning to worry.
