That's the blood going through a major artery in your body. It's normal to see it sometimes, especially if you're thin or don't have a lot of fat on your abdomen. I lost a lot of weight over the past two years and I lay down one day and saw and felt that pulsating and it freaked me out! I asked around and realized that in the past I had just been too fat to see/feel it (though sometimes even very thin people don't see or feel it). Mine comes and goes. If it is there all the time, I'd just ask the doc about it at your next visit (that way you'll get reassurance that you're fine). Personally, I'd only really worry about it if I were having abdominal symptoms, had a fat belly, or had a strong family history of aneurysms. Otherwise, many people have this (believe me, when I first noticed it, I asked people I know in real life and people I know online!) and it's normal.
