Pregnant, taken cefalexin, urinary infection. Dose?

i was prescribed 500mg cefalexin by the midwife. I am 22 weeks pregnant and 17years of age. They arent 100 % if i have a urinary infection until they get my test results back but said that thats what they would treat me for. How often can i take these? i have to take 3 500mg capsules a day. I took one at 9am this morning and was meant to take one at around 3pm this afernoon but forgot so took one at 8pm tonight, Can i take another tonight, maybe before i go to bed which would be about 1am?

hello madam
thanks for the query
since you already crossed 20 weeks its safe to take cephalexin which is not need to complete course for 5 days so that infection wont recur due to incomplete treatment...
