As long as they are fully cooked its fine. Eg: no over easy sunny side up or soft scramble, they have to be completely cooked.

Only if they are cooked 100% through. No runny yolks! You can get salmonella from improperly cooked eggs and that's dangerous when you're not pregnant so the risk is even bigger when you have a little life developing inside you. If you only can eat eggs with runny yolks (my mother in law will get sick if she tastes fully cooked yolk) and still desperately want eggs you can get pasturized eggs but they are hard to find and more costly.
