Is estrogen higher or lower during pregnancy?

High. Preganancy is a state of hyper estrogenism or high estrogen state, mainly due to increase estrogen production by the placenta (called estriol).

Good luck.
Higher. Much higher and sustained than when not pregnant. One of the principal hormones changes in pregnancy.
