Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you. What you’re likely feeling is the foetal parts and there’s likely foetal movement which causes this mass to shift to the right.

However, it makes sense to an ultrasound to rule out any other mass like a fibroid of the uterus.

Fibroids are the benign masses of the uterus and may become prominent during pregnancy. Please consult a gynecologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
