Help! I just ate uncooked cake batter! Please tell me I will be ok

I am 18 weeks along. I wasn't even thinking...I just licked a small dripping of cake batter that was on my finger! It wasn't a lot just a tiny bit but then I thought o crap! That has eggs in it...is it the same as eating uncooked cookie dough??? I am freaking out!

  • Relax. One lick isn't like eating a whole round of brie. **grin**

    (In any event, you cannot undo what's been done. Drink some water and calm yourself down.)

  • you will be ok. well at least there is a 99.999999% chance you will be ok. i have even read a recommendation before for pregnant women to eat raw eggs. i would not recommend that! lol but you will be just fine. :)

  • OMG you could get salmonella!!! Of course you could get hit by a bus or asteroid too. Or you could fall and break your neck. Or...
    You will be fine. Don't overreact. First lesson of motherhood.

  • You will most likely be fine. But yes you can get food poisioning from uncooked eggs, so in the future dont do it again.
