Thanks for posting your query.
The occasional feeling of movement in your stomach is likely to be due to intestinal gases or a periodic dysmotility of the intestines. It is triggered by the food you have had or the way you have eaten. Fatty and XXXXXXX foods, too much alcohol, eating late at night, and eating on the go make it difficult for the stomach to function properly.This might enhance such movements.
Please do not worry as it is not likely to be due to any gut pathology. Being careful in choosing your diet, having plenty of fluids and fresh vegetables daily with small servings at frequent intervals will take care of your symptoms.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
