I am 24 + 4 and have just been prescribed Amoxicillin by my dentist, for a nasty tooth infection. Having lost a baby before, at 22 weeks, I am worried sick that this might affect the baby, however I cant really not take the antibiotics, as the infection might get worse in the 4 months I have left until my EDD. Ive done some research and Amoxicillin seems to be safe in pregnancy, but Im a paranoid wreck and worried about everything, so I was wondering if any of you ladies have any experience with antibiotics in pregnancy?
Its why they prescribe this because it is safe. Of course we spent the whole last pregnancy desperate that I didn't get an abcess again as I am now allergic (and it would involve Doctors/hospital for antibiotics in pregnancy now).
Also you want the infection cleared as this can affect the pregnancy if neglected.
Snap was prescribed amoxycillin last week for UTI, then had dentist next day for tooth ache and she was going to prescribe it for me then too, so luckily had one dose of antibiotics for 2 infections!! baby moving and grooving like a good'un, am 24weeks!!
