I am 8 weeks pregnant and I saw midwife this week for a booking in meeting. At the appointment she took a sample of my urine.
Today my GP has called me to inform me that I have bacteria in my urine which is apparently common with no symptoms in pregnancy. He has prescribed me a course of antibiotics for a week.
Are antibiotics safe to take during pregnancy? I am just very cautious as I have recently suffered a slipped disc in my back and was prescribed by the same GP very strong codeine, which he told me was perfectly safe to take whilst pregnant. My midwife was not very happy when she found out and thankfully I didn't take them!
Any advice would be greatly received. Thank you x
