Hi, I am in my 17th week of pregnancy and was feeling fine until I had the flu in my 16th week. Now I feel so week and I am having difficulties passing Urine. I have pains in my left side of the lower tummy. The doc said it could be an infection and gave me Amoxicilline. But I am scared to take it thinking if will hurt my baby. Can any body please let me know if it is safe to take this antibiotic in pregnancy. I am really worried.

Doesn the doctor know that you are pregnant??? If so then what they give you should be foine, if the doctor knows that you are pregnant he/she wouldnt give you anything that would harm your baby of affect your pregnancy. If you see a doctor that you dont usually see make sure they are aware that you are pregnant before they prescribe you anything.

Hi Snowbaby, Yes I'm a Sri Lankana, but I live in the UK. here you don't see the gyno till your delivery date unless you have a major problem. Everything is done by the midwife. Even for that I have to wait till the 21st week. Till that it's the GP we have to deppend on. How ever I took about two Amoxicilin and paracitemal, and got my husbond to give me head ma__sages about twise a day. Now the headache is not that bad.
