Oh damn, got shooting pains and a sore lump in one breast. Feels like the beginning of mastitis. Have tried to unblock ducts with massage and hot bath but not working so far.

Does anyone know if I can take antibiotics whilst pregnant?

Am panicking a bit.

yes you can, only certain ones and depends what trimester your in. See the doctor asap.

You can definitely take some types... I was on them for ages after the birth and I have a friend on them for mastitis at the mo'. Just make sure you tell them (doctor/phamacist etc) at every stage that you are still b/f.
Good luck!

Sorry... I read 'pregnant' as 'breast feeding'! Doh, I thought pregnancy brain would go away after the birth!
Anyway yes again.... I had them for cyctitis when pregnant...
