In brief: See below

Large doses of cinnamon can trigger skin rashes and people who are allergic towards cinnamon may develop severe allergic reactions like anaphylactic shocks.
It may even aggravate heartburn or indigestion in pregnant women. It may even act as an uterine stimulant in high doses which is hazardous during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor before you change anything if you're pregnant.
