The FDA uses a pregnancy category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category B is given to medicines that have not been adequately studied in pregnant humans but do not appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies.

When large doses of amoxicillin were given to pregnant rats and mice, the medication did not cause any problems. Studies have shown that amoxicillin crosses the placenta (to the baby) in humans, but it does not appear to cause problems. Although amoxicillin has not been systematically and adequately studied in pregnant women, case reports and surveys seem to suggest that amoxicillin does not increase the risk of birth defects or miscarriages.

Many women have taken it during pregnancy, but the doctors will have to consider risks verses benefits.

This the advise given

Amoxicillin Pregnancy Warnings

Amoxicillin has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies using 10 times the human dose have failed to reveal any evidence of teratogenicity. Although no controlled data in human pregnancy are available, literature reports of adverse fetal effects are lacking. Amoxicillin is only recommended during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.
