Absolutely - as long as they are prescribed to you by a doctor who knows that you are pregnant. It if far better to take the antibiotic and fight the infection, than to have the infection find your unborn child. You can also call a pharmacist at any grocery store and ask them about any risks associated with what was prescribed to you.

There are many drugs, that fall under the category of antibiotics. Some of them are safe during the pregnancy, while others are not. Your gynaecologist knows about the same. Generally drugs become safer in third trimester of pregnancy as compared to first trimester of pregnancy. You are not supposed to take drugs of your own during pregnancy. Antibiotics are the class of drugs that must be prescribed to you by your doctor. You are requested to tell your doctor that you are pregnant, specially in the early months of pregnancy. Next time you go to the doctor, mention the same again. Do not presume that she or he knows the fact.
