Yes: This is one of the safest antibiotics we use in pregnancy and is definitely safer than an untreated infection. The fact that you ask tells me what a good and caring mom you are going to be. Best wishes.

No: Generally, no. Pregnancy does cause sleep related problems, most notably due to discomfort and/or anxiety, and this can increase problems with depression. After delivery, sleep deprivation can add to this. Good mental health includes personal time, exercise and nutrition and deficiencies in any one do increase your risk.

Is it ok to get a chest X-ray in the first trimester?

If necessary: Any type of test that exposes you to radiation (x-ray, cat scan) should generally be avoided in pregnancy. If such a test is medically necessary, the abdomen should be shielded with a lead apron to prevent exposure to the baby.
Dr. Christopher Powers
Obstetrics and Gynecology 23 years experience
In the first trimester, the uterus is still a pelvic organ, i.e., it still hasn't risen much above the pubic bone. Agree with adequate shielding, a chest xray will be no problem.

Should I be worried about light pink discharge in the first trimester?

Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz
Obstetrics and Gynecology 25 years experience
Depends: If you have been sexually active or otherwise physically active, or had a recent cervical exam you may spot lightly. You also may have spotting related to a vaginal infection. As long as the spotting is not accompanied by cramps, severe pelvic pain, increasingly heavier bleeding or uncomfortable vaginal discharge, relax. If you have had a miscarriage or are at risk for an ectopic preg, contact doc.
