Normal sounds: Those sounds are completely normal as your stomach and your intestinal system is moving food through the intestines. That is what is making the gurgling sound. Think of it as the sound of progress. Without this food be sitting in your stomach and you would not be able to digest or absorb the nutrients. If you're especially hungry those noises are almost always a little louder. This is normal.
