Can tight clothes during early pregnancy harm the growing fetus?Pregnancy Gynaecology
I've just discovered that I am pregnant (and could be at week 6). Unknowingly, I have worn waist tight pants and tight clothings during this period. Will this cause harm to the growing fetus?
Absolutely no worries. The uterus especially in the first 3 months of pregnancy is protected by your pelvis which is formed from bony structures.
So, tight clothes or not, the pelvis and the organs it contains maintain their form and shape!
