Keflex in first trimester

Did anyone take this in the first trimester? Did everything turn out okay with the baby?

I took it third trimester last time for a bad UTI but first trimester worries me more. Reassurance?

I was thinking I had taken it in the first trimester but apparently I was 17 weeks so second trimester.

If it helps though I do have a perfectly healthy baby after taking it earlier than the third trimester.

the risk of not healing the UTI i would think is way worse then the antibiotic.

Oh absolutely! No question on taking it, was just looking for the reassurance on the "end result"

Did your ob or mw prescribe? If so then i would think they felt it was safe enough and wouldnt harm the baby

I took it my entire pregnancy with one of my kids because every time I went off of it I had another UTI within a few days it didn't cause any problems.

I took it, it did make my heart race so bad I though I was having a heart attack, but after 3 1st trimester uti's I had to take it. I did not take monofurantonin (sp?) though, which is what was originally prescribed, I heard too many horror stories about it.
