Noisy cat stomache

My cat, who had a small litter 6 weeks ago, has very loud crunching grumbling noises coming from her stomache and I can see and feel her stomache moving.... the object feels as big as the tip ofmy thumb, and constantly moves alll over her stomache...  What could it be?

I'm a bit at a loss here. This is a case where I'd either need to see/feel the cat, or get a more detailed description.

My wife, who's the resident birth mother/kitten expert around here, said this;

If it's been six weeks, then it shouldn't be any of the serious issues that come up involving un-birthed kittens or placentas (that would have almost guaranteed caused infection and death by now).

If mother has a healthy appetite, and seems in a good physical and mental state, than the only thing she'd think likely is kitty could be having some form of very mild (or more serious, depending on kitty's health) digestive issue.

She asks (and I do :)  ) is momma's stool of a regular texture? Are her bathroom habits regular? Sometimes even people go through these issues after birth and suffer constipation, diarrhea, etc...

If you're very concerned, have a vet check momma out. Otherwise, depending on the answers to some of the questions we asked, you may need to tailor momma's diet until she settles down.

thanks for the reply,
Yes, healthy appetite, physical and mental state. Stools seem to be of regular texture.  Maybe the change of diet has thrown her, I started feeding her canned food and kitty chow per vet reccomm.( because of her new found voracious appetite.)  Also gave her a tape worm pill prior to the "alien noise " in her tummy.  I'll take her to the vet  in a day or to if it continues.
Thank you!

Oh, forgot detailed description of the problem: Here goes....  Don't think I'm crazy now,.....when you lay next to the cat you can actually hear a grumbling /gurgling  sound like a bad case of indigestion  inside of her, and when you lay your ear on her tummy, it sound exactly like a cat eating dry cat food!!!!  and the thing that moves feels about as big as a big marble but not perfectly round, and not hard. You can feel it move all under the palm of your hand,  when she's on her side, you can see it moving up on her side and  back down again. This goes on all the tibut I noticed it more when she's finished eating.  Now what do you think?

Well, some of what you're describing sounds natural. Even adult cats have fairly loud, active stomachs if you put your ear up to them. The only thing I'm not sure of is the movement your describing. I would say get kitty checked just to be safe sooner than later.
