In brief: Torn meniscus

In pregnancy the weight distribution of the body changes and it is possible to have different type and force of strain that may put more stress over the meniscus in the knee joint.

In brief: Probablly not

If the meniscus is torn, the pregnancy will not likely change the underlying problem the extra weight may put extra stress on the meniscal remnant and could cause it to tear futher.
