Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Yes you may take fast foods occasionally.

However excess of these should be avoided.
This is because these foods are generally fatty, full of cholesterol which is not healthy instead would make you gain unnecessary weight and in turn predispose you to obesity and diabetes in pregnancy.
These foods do not have much of nutritious value and can lead to problems like gas, bloating and indigestion which are as it is common in pregnancy.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.
