Some people confuse the normal feelings of digestion within the stomach with "hunger pains", which is the rumbling and movement sensation of digestion. While these feelings are normal, it is easy to confuse them with hunger and this can lead to overeating. I would not worry about the sensation as long as you know you have eaten a sufficient amount within the past 4-6 hours and as long as the feelings are not painful. If you do experience pain or burning sensation after eating you should see a doctor.
