In brief: Abdominal distension
A distended abdomen is only normal during pregnancy or after an enormous meal.
If persistent or recurrent, you are best served by a medical evaluation to localize what's swollen, and what can be done to fix it. This question was recently asked on healthtap, so i refer you to that answer which details the differential diagnosis of abdominal swelling, and what questions to expect from your doctor.
