In brief: Most likely yes!

Uncooked egg can care diseases like salmonella.
This causes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. So if you haven't gotten that from your caesar salad, you and your baby will be okay. We advise that you avoid uncooked eggs, unpasteurized cheese and milk and raw meat to reduce the risk of those infections. But an accidental injestion will probably be okay. Good luck!
