Emma, I had the same thing and just to put your mind at ease it's not uncommon - (10-30%). I took the antibiotic while pregnant and then when my water broke I was put on IV antibiotics prior to delivery. My little one was fine/no infection passed to her. I hope this helps ease your worry. Congrats! I hope you're having an enjoyable pregnancy :)
