    Default I just licked the spoon?

    I'm making cupcakes..and of course that means once your finished you get to lick the spoon. Yum.

    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!

    Don't think it will hurt, pretty sure it's more of an issue if you eat/drink a large amount so lick that spoon all you like.

    Umm I make DP a batch of muffins weekly and lick the spoon each time. I'm 30 + 3 and had a scan last week. Bub is measuring a week over and all
    Signs leading to a healthy baby.

    Here's hoping the spoon licking is all
    Good!

    I'm sure its fine as a once off (same with some other pregnancy no no's). But it's not something I would continue to do.

    I didn't even think about that,Oops. I'm sure I did that heaps during pregnancy as when nesting I did a huge amount of baking. I now have a perfectly healthy 21month old.
    I think you will be fine.

    This! Except only two babies!

    The risk with eggs is salmonella, not listeria, so a tummy ache for mum.

    ETA - my "quote" didn't work . Was quoting Thermolicious!

    You will probably be fine. I wouldn't do it again though. Just because other people have eaten raw/runny eggs and gone on to have healthy babies doesn't mean the next raw egg you eat won't contain listeria.
