Hello ladies! It seems to be a tight-knit family here (you all seem to know each other well), but I'm sure newbies are welcome to just jump right in. In that case--

I have a wedding to attend in two weeks. I have this beautiful dress I bought that goes perfectly with heels my mother got for me. I mean...perfect. My question is--is it totally taboo to wear heels while pregnant? I plan on bringing a main pair of shoes to wear--I just want the heels for pictures, I swear they were made for this dress. I've only had mild swelling of my ankles; the shoes still fit perfectly.

Then again I don't know what sort of comfortable shoes would go with the dress! It's so...different, I don't know if mary janes will do...? I can post a pic if anyone is interested.

Not taboo that I know of. I have friends and coworkers that wore them throughout their pregnancies.

I've worn them plenty of times this pregnancy, but it is harder to last all day in them than it used to be! I haven't worn them at all for about a month now.

I say go for it! I have a pair of high heel boots that I love to wear and I wore them in my first pregnancy- just be careful, us preggy ladies can be a little clumsy and off balance sometimes, as you may know! Wink I would def. change into your comfy shoes if your feet or legs start hurting/swelling.

Welcome, by the way, and congrats on your pregnancy!

I think the reason why they don't recommend high heels is just because your balance isn't the greatest when you are pg. I would wear them for sure for pictures Smile and you are already smart bringing the back-up.

I agree with the other ladies and I say if you can wear them then do it!

Welcome to the board and congrats on twins! Wow, two ladies expecting twins!

I can't walk in heels when I'm not pregnant lol, so that would be a bad idea for me. But I would say you should go for it if it isn't a problem for you! Take a pair of ballet flats to change into if/when necessary...

Wow, thanks all! I feel a bit better about wearing them now; for some reason I had it in my head that people would wonder just what the heck I'm doing.

Also, Sugspop--ballet flats!! Why didn't I think of that! I have these awesome flat boots, and while they match colour-wise, they don't match the dress at all. I'm gonna go get some comfy ballet flats, thanks. Smile

I wore a slinky black dress and heels to a wedding a few weeks ago and I felt like a million bucks! I say wear them...just have your DH or SO on your arm if you have to navigate any bumpy or slippery terrain. Have fun!
