Tummy bulging, how do I find out whether it is fat accumulation or gas ?

Actually, my body type is very slim. But since the past 6 months or so I find that my tummy is bulging a lot....I have a strong feeling that this is a result of gas accumulation...So how do I find out whether it is fat accumulation or gas ?

Gas distension you come to know because you will have lot of burp or farting along with it. In fat this does not happen. Also the size fluctuates with gas but this is not the case with fat accumalation.
