I’m not 8 months pregnant, but I would wear them and then bring a pair of flats for later 🙂

I’m planning on wearing heels until I go in to labor, lol. It’s just part of me, and I don’t feel right without them when I go out. I’m 7 months pregnant and just bought a brand new pair. The only issue I have is swelling. But if I’m walking, I’m usually holding FI’s arm or something, so I have a way to steady myself if need be.

I agree with mwitter80 I’d wear the heels but take a back up for when my feet got tired.

Honestly, I wouldn’t and I’m only 20 weeks. But then I can be a klutz. I’m on the fence about wearing a killer pair of heels a friend gave me that would go well with another dress she lent me for my office holiday party. But it’s 4″!! I’m afraid of slipping outside more than anything.

I was reading that all flat is not good and a sturdy 2″ heel is actually best for your back so maybe that’s why flats are killing you? I’ve been sticking with wedges since BFP.

I’m 22 weeks and have stopped wearing heels. I dont wear heels that often anyway and even wore flats to my wedding. But as a pregnant woman I just feel safer and more secure in flat shoes. I’ve had pain in my tail bone and pelvis due to my pelvis loosening to prepare for labor and I was told this causes pregnant women to be more prone to falling or losing their balance

I was going to suggest wearing the heels and bringing flats (or shorter heels) for later in the evening.  Just be careful not to slip on any ice outside (assuming we get some in MA by then!)

Nobody is going to be looking at an 8 month pregnant womans feet to critique her shoes, if you are comfortable wearin the heals then wear them, but if you want to wear a slightly more casual flat than do.  I wore heals my whole pregnancy, but my last few months were the summer so it was easier than winter.  I don’t know that I would have felt comfortable with them in Dec.

If you can pull off the heels at 8 months pregnant, I will be jealous! By the time I was 8 months, none of my nice or comfortable shoes fit my swollen feet; all I could wear were running shoes – even to formal events!

I think wear them if you feel up to it!  I couldn’t wear anything but Crocs my last couple months of pregnancy because I was too swollen, lol, so there was no way I could’ve fit into my heels at 8 months.  🙂

I wore 4″ heels to my work party the other night, and my legs and feet ached for two days. Painful throbbing! I would definitely put some flats in your bag and when the feet start hurting, put them on. The after effects are not worht it! Also, after a couple of hours at the wedding, everyone else will be so drunk they wont notice

I’m 8 months pregnant and I wear heels to work everyday.  I think you have to wear what works best with how you’re feeling.  I would wear the heels and then bring a plain pair of flats for “just in case”.

If you can rock heels at 8 months, I say do it! That would be awesome! At 8 months I had cankles and couldn’t see my feet lol so I wore flip flops
