In brief: Benefit vs Risk
Quinolone antibiotics are a category "c" when it comes to safety during pregnancy.
This basically means that there are no conclusive studies to show that it is safe or harmful during pregnancy. Best to err on the side of safety and have your doctor consider alternatives, if any are available for your particular clinical situation.
