I had my urinalysis and my UTI is confirmed. She gave me Cefalexin.

Now I wanna know if there's anything I could take, like herbs or something, to cure UTI during pregnancy. I know Cefalexin is safe but I feel a bit uncomfortable taking antibiotics now that I'm pregnant. Or are there any side effects taking antibiotics when expecting?
Honey I'm not an expert but believe me, whatever your doctor prescribes you is safe. They don't wanna be compromising their licences, right?
But if you are extremely anxious and uncomfortable taking RX meds, then here you go:

1. Blueberries
2. Pineapples

@ Adalira- It's indeed yucky tasting. But you'll get a good night's sleep knowing that it's all safe.

That's good news but I'm curious as to how many blueberries and pineapples are to be eater just to stop UTI.

I agree, but there are also other factors that might lead to infection like totally gross places so it's far best to disinfect before jumping onto any loo! Yikes!
