I am 13 wks pregnant with my 2nd child. My first child was born 8 weeks early due to a kidney infection I had. For this pregnancy, my NP put me on 500mg of Keflex for the duration of my pregnancy. This seems like a high dose to me and it seems strange to take an antibiotic for 29 more weeks. Have you heard of this? Please advise
When I was pregnant I was on Macrobed once day everday to prevent kidney/bladder/uti infections. I get them constantly. Even now. Towards the end of my pregnancy they switched me to keflex (cephalexin) and during the birth they injected an antibiotic into my iv to prevent anything going to my baby. It is safe if you follow directions on bottle and drink plenty of water! Water is the key! Seriously. Can't stress it enough. My son is great and healthy. If you are still pregnant or breastfeeding, I even recommend LIPIL DHA ARA supplement. It is great. Good luck.
