Probably ok: But check with your doc. We doctors are very concerned about side effects in pregnant women. Better to be safe.

Unlikely: However, it is good general advice to use back up for about 7 days when using antibiotics.

No danger at all: These two drugs do not interact. They are entirely safe together for both you and the baby.
