Hi Seher, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Kindly don't worry as these medicines are absolutely safe during Pregnancy. Uterogestan is a Progesterone Hormone which will help you maintain your Pregnancy, Animal studies have revealed little to no evidence of impaired fertility or fetal harm. Studies in women have not demonstrated significant increases in fetal malformations. Progesterone is only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk. Coming to the Antibiotics, Orelox 100mg contains Cefpodoxime Proxetil and according to FDA it belongs to category B which means there are no reports documented which have reported adverse effects in the growing fetus, and it is prescribed during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk. Kindly don't panic, just take them as directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health, All the Best, Take Care.
