    I made ice cream with egg yolks and cookies with raw egg this morning, and will eat the ice cream and ate the cookie dough.

    The chances of listeria are so low. Like 60 cases a year across all of Australia.

    Except DP had to ruin it by casually saying to me.. 'Umm.. doesn't that have raw egg in it?' Argh???!!

    So.. Please tell me about your spoon licking experiences and your perfectly healthy babies so I don't start to become a crazy person!
    I have done it so many times it's not funny. You'll be fine

    The raw egg thing is a salmonella risk, rather than a listeria risk

    Is salmonella fatal to babies, like listeria?

    If not, even less guilt for my raw egg consumption, lol.

    At the end of the day, you can't turn back the clock...a few times I've eaten something that's a no-no by accident, but everything has been ok.
    It does make me a bit cross though, when I hear people say "I ate x, y, z (knowingly) and my baby was fine"- just because your baby was ok doesn't make it a good idea. It is only a very small percentage of women and babies that are affected, but when they are, the consequences can be devastating- I have seen it first hand. So my advice is chill out about what has happened knowing the chances of a big problem are very small, but don't repeat it.

    The risk with salmonella is that you may be so sick that your dehydration etc may affect the baby, but no it doesn't directly affect the bub like listeria does.

    you will be fine.
    if the egg was off, you certainly would have noticed!
    listeria and salmonella need time to grow, they are found in foods made with raw egg (like mayo) that have been left to sit at nice warm temps.
    unless you made the cake mix yesterday, sat it on the counter since then i wouldn't worry.
    i ate mayo through my pregnancy as hubby is a chef. perfectly fine!

    I made carrot cake the other week, licked the beaters and the spoon (had too!)

    Then I got really bad stomach aches... I then realised there was raw egg and I was an idiot...

    What I DIDN'T know I'd gotten gastro from someone at work. ha ha ha. totally unrelated. Baby fine!
