    I'm avoiding runny eggs or anything that might contain runny or uncooked eggs.
    I was eating celery sticks last night but was afraid to use the dip incase it was made with eggs lol. X

    I had a lion stamped semi runny egg this morning to satisfy a craving! Last time I had one was Christmas and all was fine, as long as they are lion stamped then I am told it is ok. X

    The reason it's recommended you avoid them is that if you catch salmonella from them it makes you very ill and this can be much worse when pregnant - if this leads to severe dehydration, which it can, then not good for you or baby.

    I'm dying for a soft poached egg on toast but I'm choosing not to risk it - been ill enough already thanks!

    I'm really wanting a runny egg too! I've said that's the first thing I'm going to have when the pip is here! I've just read it's a no no due to the risk of salmonella :(

    my mw said I could have runny eggs as long as they were lion stamped because they have been cleared of everything and the white was totally firm. xxxxxxxxx

    Regretfully not.
    My absolute favourite breakfast is soft poached eggs on toast. First breakfast post pregnancy, for sure!

    Oops I have never heard of the no runny egg rule and feel bad now!!! I'm sure I'll be fine because the whites were cooked but even when I read guidelines on foods to avoid I never say no runny eggs. You can't do right from wrong....I really fancy one now lol x

    As tempting as it is, I'm staying well away just in case.

    I've managed to get to 35 weeks without having a runny egg, so may aswell go all the way.
    Something to look forward to once I've had LO :)

    i think so long as they are lion stamped then all is ok, i've had runny eggs thru this pregnancy and when i was pregnant with DD and i've always been fine, the way i see it, i have never had salmonella from a runny yolk in all the years i've been eating them so the odds must be pretty low plus i always make sure the whites are fully cooked (cant eat a snotty egg anyway eugh :sick: lol) xx

    I've had salmonella from an egg a few years ago. Admittedly it wasnt in this country, so the food standards are not the same.

    It's hideous, it lasts for weeks. Couldn't imagine going through that again let alone whilst being pregnant.

    I know it's ok if they are lion stamped but I wouldn't want to risk it.
    Xx

    I have avoided runny eggs all the way through my pregnancy. Even if I have a meal at the Supermarket will ask for hard fried egg and they're always very understanding. I also would love a runny boiled egg and toasted soldiers! Just not prepared to risk it.
