I am craving eggnog. I know its not healthy in general but is it safe to drink while pregnant? Are the eggs cooked or raw?

As long as it's pasteurized it is absolutely fine.  I wouldn't drink any homemade eggnog though just to be on the safe side.  I'm so ready for eggnog season!!

ohh yeah, and my husband is alll over it. He is an egg nog-aholic.
actually he is obsessed with custard nog, which is equally as strange as egg nog LOL but we rarely find it, so he settles for vanilla spice egg nog.

it's fine if it's pasteurized. made my stomach horribly upset the other day, though! too heavy.



They're selling eggnog where you live already? I don't think i saw any yet where i live i think maybe the end of this month or the first week of november

I have a carton of eggnog in my frig right now!! I was jumping for joy when I saw it was out already!! I have drank eggnog with this and my other 2 pregnancies and never had a problem.

Probably your best best would be to ask your doctor. But I love eggnog too, so it would be nice to know for sure!

Only store-bought pasteurized.  Don't make it homemade.
