Yes: Wash hands well after handling the shells and the raw egg, and then cook and enjoy. Don't eat raw or undercooked. But eggs are an excellent source of protein during pregnancy, so it's fine to enjoy them, even on a daily basis.

If it is kept cold: Egg salad usually has mayonnaise in it, which can harbor bacteria if left out of the refrigerator. Keep cold at all times before eating and you should be fine.
