High Heels While Pregnant? Yay or Nay?


People Magazine’s Off The Rack blog discussed Nicole Richie’s maternity fashion today and after I saw the pic of her (on the right) with her fabulous patent leather red (possibly Louboutin?) high heels, a question popped in my head to ask you all. Hence the post title, ‘High Heels While Pregnant? Yay or Nay?’

Personally, I didn’t wear high heels while I was pregnant only because I didn’t like the ‘vibration sensation’ that the heels gave my belly. Do you know what I mean? Like everytime I took a step, my belly jiggled–and I don’t mean an extra flab jiggle, I mean a solid vibration sorta shake. Meh, anyway, it was just bizarre so I didn’t bother with ‘em. I stuck with stylish flats and/or kitten heels for work or after work. Naturally, I kept my tops cute while squuuuezing into low, low cut skinny jeans and/or maternity pants (low cut as to not interfere with my belly, feel me?). I was in such denial regarding maternity wear, that I didn’t purchase my first pair of official maternity pants/jeans until I was like 7 months. I know, I know… I’m a nut case.

Anyway, go ‘head and vote. It’d be interesting to see what y’all think:

    I didn’t wear them either, as much as I love heels. Actually I wore wedges. There were far more comfortable and still giving you that stylish height. I was just too afraid of falling and hurting my baby so didn’t wear any heels.

    Hey Dexie! Wedges are a fabulous idea. It gives more support and like you said, that stylish height at the same time. Good one!

    When I was pregnant we were told that walking in high heels was bad for your back, once your profile began to expand.

    Since I was pregnant with twins, just sitting was hard on my back!

    Well at least I got my family all in one fell swoop! I can’t imagine what it’s like to have on child at a time. All those different ages would make me nuts!

    LOL! Ur right about ‘one fell swoop’ because now the thought of doing the whole thing over again scares the bejeezus outta me! Le sigh…
