In brief: Okay

We prescribe this drug, otherwise known as Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) all the time, especially to treat uti's in pregnancy.
There is a insignificant increase in cleft lip with this drug. Most doctor in pregnancy will prescribe a penicillin, cephalosporin or Erythromycin as first line, but sometimes a woman has an infection that's resistant to those drugs, and a drug like Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) may be prescribed given risk so low.
