@ysmina-- Please take your medication!
I used amoxicillin during two pregnancies because of an ear infection the first time and tonsillitis the second time. Everything was fine and both my babies are completely healthy!
I don't agree with you that you need to use your own judgement about this. Doctors know best and I truly believe that doctors are extra careful when prescribing medication to pregnant women as they know what the risks could be. Your doctor would not prescribe amoxicillin if he or she didn't believe that you need it and that it's safe for both you and your baby.
If you don't treat the infection, it can develop into something much worse like the article said. You are putting your baby in more danger by refusing treatment. You should follow the doctor's orders on this and I'm telling you it's safe. I've used it!
