    hi! I have been on met throughout the pregnancy and also antibiotics (amox.) twice for a horrible root canal. I am sure there are plenty of women too who have been on antibiotics for a UTI. My ob never seemed concerned about me being on a couple of type b drugs at the same time. How long do you need to be on the antibiotics? I think the benefits of the drugs outweighs the risk. I mean, it would prob. be worse for the baby if you didn't take the meds. Good luck!
