In brief: Generally it won't

But it's important to be healthy before becoming pregnant.
So, if someone is on a high protein diet because she's overweight or obese, it may be best to become healthy prior to becoming pregnant. Diets for weight loss during pregnancy are discouraged.

In brief: No

High protein diets combined with complex carbohydrates, with moderate calories and exercise is an excellent start to attempting pregnancy.
