Cephalexin has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA.
This means that animal studies have not shown any harm. There are no human studies.
However Cephalexin has been used in various stages of pregnancy without any problems.
Your doctor has decided that it would be more harmful for you not to be treated.
Given the evidence above I don't think you need to worry.
Suzanne is right. many women have safely used antibiotics while pregnant. Also remember that babies can take antibiotics safely too so dont worry so much. Your baby will be just fine! The antibiotic wont hurt him/her.
