It is normal you just had major trauma to the abdomen...plus if its only day one or two you may have a lot of trapped gas....The swelling will go down ..I found that a nice ice pac helped placed directly on area where uterus used to be ..use a towel if its too cold..it helps with pain and swellingtrapped gas is released by walking just walk around the house..no steps..if recent surgery..remember rest rest  rest,,youll heal better and faster,,,Best wishes.
