In brief: Bad for you and baby

Eating salty foods rich in carbohydrates is not good at any stage and is worse during pregnancy.
Increase in blood pressure and gestational diabetes are two risks of pregnancy that you are exposing yourself to by your diet. Both of these conditions are also not good for your baby.
