Is it normal for my clothes to be tight around my tummy so early in pregnancy?

This can happen in first trimester, but because the womb is contained inside the pelvis until 12 weeks of pregnancy, it is not the pregnancy itself that is making you feel bloated. Unless you are expecting twins or more, it is probably due to your bowel rather than your baby. Hormones also affect your bowel in early pregnancy and may leave you suffering with wind and constipation which will make you feel bloated, a sensation which usually improves as the pregnancy continues. If you tend to have a bit of a tummy anyway or have poor muscle tone you may be aware of the pregnancy sooner.
