Wearing high heels when pregnant is really not a smart idea. This is because when you gain weight, your body shape and center of gravity changes, causing you to walk in a different manner. Furthermore, ligaments loosen during pregnancy, resulting in joint instability and muscular strain.
There are a variety of reasons why you should not wear your heels during pregnancy, as they can be uncomfortable and pose specific hazards.

Wearing high heels is meant to make you sit up straighter. Your pelvic muscles are curved forward, giving your back a rounder form. During pregnancy, you will gain a significant amount of weight in the front, and this shift in posture will cause pain.
2 Calf Cramps

When you wear heels for an extended period of time, your calf muscles contract. This causes muscle cramps, which might be intense during pregnancy.
3 Swelling in feet

Edema, or swelling in the legs, ankles, and feet, is a common medical problem that occurs during pregnancy. More fluid will accumulate in your lower body, and you may have pain in addition to swollen feet.
