I had uti and was prescribed trimethorprim for it. At the time i wasnt aware i was pregnant although i did tell the doctor i am TTC and give me something safe for pregnancy. A week later i found out am pregnant and read the side effect of the drug and am freaking out so badly now!

Has this happened to anyone? Did it harm your baby?

Am worried sick! Can someone please reply

Make sure you take 5mg of folic acid a day.

I have been taking the pregnacare pregnancy tablets since i found out am pregnant but still so worried. Has this happened to anybody?

Pregnacare only contains 4mg of folic acid , I would advise taking folic acid on its own until week 12 then switch to pregnacare.
You can take another multi vitamin as long as it doesn't contain vitamin A.
