So you all know by now how paranoid and worried I am about this pregnancy. So paranoid to the point where I have not even taken one Tylenol during this pregnancy...no OTC meds whatsoever, no caffeine, no deli meat, no soft serve, no soda, etc. So of course what happens? I get a UTI. And we all know the only way to treat a UTI is with...antibiotics! And of course, for those of you who don't know, there are no "Class A" antibiotics. The best you get is "Class B." Well the physician's assistant prescribed Keflex, and I made her go into all this detail about how safe it is for the baby, and she basically concluded by saying it's definitely a lot safer than an untreated UTI, which can turn into a kidney infection (which needs antibiotics in any event), etc.
So here I am. I have spent like 2 hours on Google and everything, I mean EVERYTHING says Keflex is safe. The worst I could find was 2 uncontrolled studies that had a low incidence of birth defects. So of course that's the one I am focusing on, not the 93 other websites that said it's commonly prescribed during pregnancy, no proven adverse effects, etc.
I trust you ladies more than the internet...can anyone tell me they've been on Keflex/Cephalexin during pregnancy and everything was fine (you now have a healthy DD or DS, or your LO is still growing strong). TIA for talking me down.
