My cat is around 40 days in, she's been staying indoors for the past week. Yesterday her belly was a lot bigger than today, i looked around the house a little in case she might've given birth but found nothing. Is this normal? This is her first pregnancy.

It is possible that she miscarried and ate the remains, or it may just be her weight shifting. Time will tell.

Do you plan to get her spayed eventually?

There are no noticeable changes other than her belly looking smaller, no bloody discharge or anything. If she miscarried would I be able to tell?
Once she has given birth I am planning on getting her spayed and neutered

If she is no longer pregnant she will eventually go into heat again. You can also have a vet do an x-ray. It will show if she is carrying kittens still.

There is perhaps a possibility you got the starting time wrongly, ie she is really into her 65 day, not 40. but if so, she should probably deliver during today tuesday.... As they do drop just a couple of days before delivery...

If not, its wise to consult a vet. If she isnt pregnant no more, do agree on a spaying time.

I figured out that it was 51 days ago when she left the house and mated.
