Does anyone know if this is more of a guideline and its ok to eat one the odd time or are runny eggs a total no no?
Thanks for your help
Bit of a silly question but I have an unmerciful craving to have a fry tomorrow morning so I was going to get DH to take me out for one. One question though, I googled eggs during pregnancy and all the sites say not to have a runny egg and that it must be cooked through.
I'd rather give the fry a miss if I had to have a hard poached/fried egg
Em not too sure bout that one. If I'm cooking the eggs myself there I would let them still be a bit runny. I thought you just had to be careful of things that actually had raw egg in them like mouse etc??
Hi, the generally advice would be to make sure the yolk is hard, otherwise it's not cooked properly.
A googie egg is raw egg yolk,best to avoid as far as I know...
Yeah the general consensus seems to be to avoid them. Typical, most foods make me feel sick at the moment and the one i want most at the moment isn't allowed.
Ah well, i'm booking myself in for a fry up the morning the babys born so
Eggs should be cooked thoroughly i.e. not runny/soft. It is in case there is salmonella in it. I usually have a fried egg one morning over the weekend and h nukes it 'just in case' - can't wait to have a soft egg yolk and toast....
What about scrambled eggs, omlettes and quiche - are they off the menu too?

They are all fine once the egg is cooked throughly...eggs are very good for you!
Phew! Thougt I was going to lose a staple dinner (we have omelette night once a week!) Thanks a mill x
Soft boiled eggs are my comfort food and I was devestated about this! I asked both my gynae and my GP hoping it was "just a guideline" but they both told me under no circumstances to have undercooked eggs, they must be cooked through i.e. hard boiled/fried/poached!!
