So my stomach pulsates right near my bellybutton. I am not pregnant, and it the pulse beats the same as my heart. Is this normal?

I know sometimes this can be normal if you are lying down or are skinny, but I am not that skinny. Also, I've heard it's dangerous if it beats the same as my heart. I also can feel a strong pulse when lying down. Also, I do not want to tell my parents unless it's serious.

    It’s the same as your heart because that what a pulse is, you are picking up the aorta, the largest artery in the body. Don’t know where you heard it’s dangerous, but a pulse IS the blood you heart beats out, all your pulses are the same
