Brief Answer: could be normal bowel movements Detailed Answer: Hello, What you are feeling could be normal bowel movements. Perhaps, you are sensing it more while asleep around 2 am. If it is not bothering you much, you must ignore it. If you feel pain or bloated in your stomach, then you can get an elective ultrasound of the whole abdomen, just to rule out any possible causes. However, in my view, it is normal. Wish you good health.
