Question

If I put a suction cup further up my tank and put my plants in it/them will that be okay, or will they die, I've got a few guppies that I think are pregnant so I wanted to take the plants higher where the cleaning crew won't get the eggs

Depends what kind of plant; if they are heavy root feeders then they won't be happy. Guppies are live-bearers, meaning they give birth to live young, not eggs. Snails won't be able to eat the babies but the parents will!

Oh sorry, my brain must have auto corrected clean up crew to snails! But to answer your original question if the plants feed from the water column then moving them up with suction cups should be fine. I used to keep an anubias and anacharis anchored to the glass with suction cups. Guppy parents will still eat babies though, but with the plants some may make it.
