  • Yes, in this pregnancy I took it in the first trimester for a UTI. Go to it is a great place to look up medications and their safety during pregnancy.

  • Yes, I ended up with a kidney infection and was put on macrobid as a preventative for the rest of my pregnancy. I questioned my doctors and they said the same as above, it's safe to use.
