Fluttering feeling in abdomen, no pain. Is it normal?

I'm 46
Keep in mind I have never had this b4. Ok so under my belly above the happy place, in the center I keep getting like a butterfly feeling since Tues. which happened to be the start of my period. it comes on more & more, after dinner tonight I had my boyfriend listen to it, since he can't feel what I'm feeling from the outside, he said it sounds like running water, then slows down to a dripping coffee pot cooking. I have NO PAIN, but I don't think it is normal, anything you can think of, Thanks & my b/f is fixed, & I pee & poo & pass gas just fine also.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum
Thanks for writing to H.C.M.F.
As you describe you had a feeling of butterfly in the supra pubic area. It is not a pain, but a feeling. Your boy friend described as flowing water, and resission, yes both of you are correct. To the nerves of that area it feels as you feel . but for the hearing and hand sensation it will be felt as flowing water.
They are the sounds of the gut. when the nerves of that area are intact and busy we wont feel the sensation. But when the nerves become some what weak they become stimulated and and feeling is felt. When the nerves are intact also when the intestines are irritant due to irritant food the sounds may be felt.
During examination with the stethoscope are direct hearing we feel like flowing water , it goes on increasing and decreasing hence we feel it.
There is nothing to worry, but if they are accompanied with loose motions or pain you should consult a doctor as it signifies infection,and don't come down with out treatment.
Wishing that everything will be fine.
Best regards.
