It seems you have urine infection
Its a common condition in pregnancy especially in the second and thirds trimester
You can safely take Ceftum -( Cefuroxime)
Noramlly prescribed as as 40 to 100 mgs/kg. That would work to about 500mgs twice a day for an adult of average weight
This group of medicaton is safe in pregnancy
However if you are allergic to penecillin or cephalosporin group - you have to inform the doctor before you take this medication

Hello vijayakrishna;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The dose of Cefuroxime that is Ceftum is 30-100 mg/kg body weight so a dose of 500 mg twice a day is proper and safe.It belongs to cephalosporine group which is safe in pregnancy so it is commonly prescribed for severe infections.
