Bowel motility ??: If you notice the movement while you are at rest, it is probably your intestines. Your intestines are constantly in motion, and sometimes you can feel the sensation of movement inside your abdomen just because of the normal bowel activity. If you are feeling the movement only when you change position, it could indicate a mass in your abdomen or pelvis - in that case you should see your doctor.
