    Hi everybody! I'm new here! I finally managed to get through first trimester:happydance: I'm so happy for that!
    Unfortunately I got a UTI in the second month of pregnancy and doc prescribed Augmentin. Now, on my 14 week I got an UTI again and I have to take augmentin again!! I'm so scared it would harm my baby...although doc says it's safe but I don't feel good about it:cry:
    Did anybody get any antibiotics for an UTI and what happened? I'm so desperate..

    ive had them 4 a uti hun and me and lo are fine. a uti is more dangerous than taking antibiotics as the infection can go 2 your kidneys quite quickly in pregnancy.

    be sure to dink loads of water as it will help flush your system out

    Welcome to 2nd tri, sorry you are not feeling too good the tabs the dr has given you are considered safe in pg so try not to worry, and drink plenty to help flush infection out quicker.
    hope you feel better soon.

    I also had a kidney scan in order to detect any other complications and the doctor didn't see anything...kidneys are fine. I try to drink lots of water and pee all the time but still in doubt about the antibiotics...I don't know , I'm just too worried..
    Anyway thanx for the support..
