Suffering from lack of sleep due to noisy stomach. Fear Heart failure?

My father is suffering from lack of sleep due to the fact that during the night while he is lying down, his stomach makes loud noises, but only when he breathes out. I was concerned it might be crackles due to possible heart failure , but the doctor sounded his back during the day and said his chest sounds clear. He is 88
