I am 6 months postpardum and I still feel movement in my stomach. I have been using birth control and getting my perios every month. My boyfriend and I are sexually active. My stomach is still pretty flabby but I still feel movement. Is this normal?

It seems that there is nothing to worry about. Movements in the stomach can be fairly normal and not cause for medical concern. Stomach movement may be caused by bowel movements or even the imagination. However, if you are concerned you can schedule a check up with your family doctor for a physical examination.
