Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is. It may be flatus, fat, feces, fluid, and fetus. Other possibilities are also there such as infection in any intra-abdominal organs.

Please consult your doctor and get your abdomen scan done and get treated accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
