I'm 8 weeks pregnant and the urine test I did accused bacterial infection. Culture and sensitivity were done. My doctor prescribed Zinnat (cefuroxin). Is it to dangerous for my baby's development?
Did they know you were pregnant when they gave it to you? If yes, then it will be fine. Sepsis from letting a urinary tract infection go to your kidneys then into your blood stream could kill your baby (and possibly you too!) so you want to take the antibiotic. We give women who are pregnant medicine if the benefits outweigh the risks. Just always be sure the prescribing doctor knows you are pregnant and how far along you are.
