Antibiotics

I am 4 weeks 2 days pregnant and I have strep throat. My OB called in an antibiotic for me. But I'm nervous to take it. Anyone take an antibiotic before while pregnant? I really want the pain to go away and I don't want my DD or DH to get it so I'm leaning towards taking it. Just thought I would get some opinions.

Can you ask the pharmacist if it is safe to take during pregnancy?

It is safe. It's a category B. I guess I'm just being overly paranoid.

 I've taken the basic antibiotics during pregnancy...not for being sick but I was bit by a dog. You can always ask the pharmacist if it's safe but I really doubt your OB would call in something for you that wasn't safe.
