Incomplete digestion: Interesting observation. Would suggest making sure you get the same amount of sleep every night, meaning that if you have to wake up early you compensate by going to sleep earlier. Also, keeping a food log may help in deciding if your symptoms have to do with sleep time or type of food ingested in the second part of the day. ...Read more

I keep getting hardness and swelling in my lower abdomen, I'm not gassy or constipated, it often feels like I'm really full, any ideas?

Many possibilities: Possibilities are from nothing to things like a full bladder if you retain urine, large uterus, fluid in abdominal wall or inside.
