I feel something moving in my stomache

Hi,
I was a little unsure as to which category to post my question, but sure hope to receive an answer.

For a few days now, especially in the middle of the night, I've been feeling something pulsating or like moving around in my stomach, mostly on the right side, but below my navel area. I feel this during midday also. In fact today I was staring at my stomach at the exact time of the movement and I saw my stomach quiver slightly. What could it be?

I am 38 yrs old, and I've had 3 ectoptic pregnancies in the past. The last one was like 15 yrs ago, and I hadn't been pregnant since. What could all this moving and fluttering be?
I don't want to speculate anything, nor do I want to excite my household, so I'm turning here for some advice.
Hope to hear from someone soon and thanks in advance.

I would suggest that you see your doctor to do a pregnancy test just in case. Pulsating around the umbilicus could be your stomach or bowels or rarely the main blood vessel like the aorta. If you are experiencing any pain or if this persists, I suggest seeing your doctor as soon as possible.
