In brief: Not a good idea

Your calorie needs will change throughout pregnancy.
In the first trimester, most people don't need extra calories. Later however, you will need extra calories. When you see your OB/Gyn for your regular checkups, you will be weighed and your Ob/Gyn can advise you on appropriate nutrition.
