I am craving eggs for supper but I really want sunny side up so I can dip my toast in the runny yolk! How bad is this to do when pregnant? It's all I can think about!

I've heard people say youre not supposed to do it, but to be very honest I have my eggs over easy/medium at least once a week. I'll be interested to see what everyone says on this.

The risk of contamination of your eggs is extremely, extremely rare these days. From a professor at Penn State: "eggs have not been a significant food-safety risk in recent years." In the last twenty or so years quality assurance steps were dramatically improved to reduce this chance.

I started off diligent with scrambled eggs, but they are just not as good. So I now cook the egg yolk maybe a little more than I typically would, but otherwise just go for it with nice sunny side up or easy-over. But I also love eggs enough to make this exception. I also will eat a bit of aged raw-milk cheese from a known producer for the same reason.

Plus eggs are super good for me and my growing baby.

This is the one thing I have missed most during pregnancy, I LOVE my eggs over medium!

I know that the main concern is the risk of salmonella. While the risk is pretty darn low, it's more that pregnant women are supposedly more susceptible.

I have been VERY tempted to just splurge one of these weekends. I really don't know if I can hold out for another 20 weeks!

The only reason they say not to is because it is technically uncooked which can possibly give you salmanela or however you spell it. I try to stay away from it only because I dont really like it all too much. But I really doubt one egg is going to get you sick imo.

Eh, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I mean yeah technically we're supposed to avoid it because it's un(der)cooked, but I think with all the stuff they do to foods nowadays it's a really tiny risk. I'd be ok taking a chance with it, but you have to decide for yourself!

I still eat mine over easy. I eat pretty much everything I have heard to avoid such as lunchmeat.

That's the only way I ever eat mine! I call them dippy eggs! I've never avoided them while pregnant! But like somoene else said, you have to decide for yourself how you feel about it. Come to think of it, I've never had a dr or anyone tell me to avoid eggs over easy/medium!

I'm still eating mine over easy when I cook them at home, they're local and I feel good about how they're sourced and handled. I don't usually eat eggs out much, anyway.

In general I'm pretty careful, and a lot of the stuff we're suppose to avoid is stuff I don't eat anyway (lunch meat, soft serve, etc... though I do miss unpasteurized cheese). Plus, the worst listeria outbreaks this summer have been from cantaloupe and onions, not on the "too avoid" list. So, I agree this is a personal choice, and I think you have to make a decision that won't make you worry too much.

What's okay when pregnant changes all the time, anyway. Before, you were supposed to avoid eggs altogether, and now the Brewer's diet says two a day!

Now I want an egg.

Just had them for lunch and they were delicious. I did cook them slightly longer and did over easy but still so good!

Meh. I don't worry about it. I eat raw cookie dough when pregnant. From the research I did when I was pregnant with my first (granted this was 4+ years ago), it sounds like salmonella is not IN the eggs, but on the shell. The hazard is when the eggs are cracked and the whites or yoke come in contact with the outside of the shell or shell pieces.

I don't know if it would help to wash the outside of the eggs or not or just be really careful when cracking them. Either way, from what I read, the risk of catching salmonella from an egg is awfully low, even if it's slightly increased for us preggos.

I haven't allowed it to stop my from enjoying the occasional cookie dough binge.

I just ate an egg over medium for breakfast The salmonella risk is on the shell/outside...so just be wary if you drop shells in or anything! It is a decision only you can make though.

Just as a note, although Salmonella contamination is most likely (in its very rare occurrences) to affect the outside of the egg shell, if a chicken is infected with Salmonella it can affect its ovaries and thus the ovum, which turns into the egg substance before the shell is formed. Again, super, super, super rare. And I eat my eggs with slightly drippy yolks...mmmm....breakfast....happily, aware of this.

I didn't know that! Kind of fascinating and good to know.

If you clean the shells off with alcohol before you crack them, that is ALMOST ALWAYS where the salmonella lies. I know because when I was TTC I used egg whites once, and I read that the inner of an egg is sterile! THe salmonella exists on the shell! But also, I eat my eggs basted, not runny runny, but a bit soft and a teensy bit runny, once a week or so. I also had a BAD BAD panic for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies the other night, and while I was making them I could NOT HELP but stick my finger in and eat some raw cookie dough.

I think it's fine. The chances are miniscule.
