Antibiotics in pregn: Unless you have symptoms of UTI such as frequent urination for small amounts of urine or urgency such that you can not control your urine, I doubt that you have 'constant UTI' .I would avoid using antibiotics unless you have symptoms and a confirmation of infection with a Urine test/s(U/A and Urine culture). You could ask your doctor to run tests on your urine to find out if you have UTI for sure.

Chronic suppression: If you have repeated laboratory proven UTIs in pregnancy, chronic suppresion is sometimes needed. This means that you take a low-dose of an antibiotic daily until you deliver. UTIs can lead to pyelonephritis or pre-term labor so its best to stay on-top of this problem. Your Ob will guide you. Best wishes!
