You have not mention the generic name of antibiotics but as you are taking antibiotics prescribed by your doctor you need not to worry as they have taken care of your foetus.
Some group of antibiotics to be taken have less side effects & safer for foetus.
The complication of repeated infection is more harmful then side effect of antibiotics to your unborn baby.
