    It is fine to take antibiotics. I've taken them twice between 12-15 weeks and now my OB put me on another antibiotics (macrobid) for the rest of my pregnancy to prevent future UTI in this pregnancy.

    I was on antibiotic for 4 weeks when I was 21 weeks pregnant last time round. Didn't do any harm and I'm sure my consultant wouldn't have given me them for so long if they could!
