Safe, But...

Make sure it is not made with raw unpasteurized eggs!

According to WebMd, mayonnaise made with raw eggs, often found in restaurants, is not safe for pregnant women to eat.  BabyMed and the American Pregnancy Association state that raw eggs may contain bacteria such as E. coli or Salmonella, which may be harmful to both a pregnant woman and her baby.  However, mayonnaise made with pasteurized eggs is safe for pregnant women to ingest.
