In brief: Consider hernia

If it is one on one particular place and/or you have any prior surgery to the area, a hernia can give you that sensation.
If you are constipated and don't have regular bowel movements, then you may just have a bloating sensation that is more noticable when you are on one side for a prolonged period of time.
