Double check with MD: I would call the office to clarify - usually nitrofurantoin is given 4x a day, but maybe there was some reason they wanted only 3x a day. That might be if you have any pre-existing kidney trouble, in that case - a slightly lower amount might be better for you. This medicine is considered 'safe' in pregnancy - for the stage of pregnancy you are in now. Good to get the infection over and done with.
