Lol.. Don’t worry about it ali, as long as there's no warning on the mayonnaise bottle: "not to consume while pregnant" you're ok! :wink:

I read that mayonnaise is okay but avoid those that are homemade. Yes, the reason behind it is the egg content especially if the yolk is not properly cooked.

What I have read did suggest avoiding mayonaise, raw cookie dough, and anything else with raw egg in it due to the risk of samonella poisoning from the raw egg. However, I have never really heard of a big mayo scare for pregnant women, so I would say use at your own descretion.
