Is it normal for the incision to pooch out ward from a laparoscopic surgery ?

In brief: No

This is not normal, you may have a hernia in the incision, have your surgeon check this.
Other possibilities exist, infection (area will be very tender, red, and may be draining fluid), non-infected fluid may also accumulate, the surgeon will be able to help you.
