In brief: Depends

On the infection.
Metronidazole cannot be used in the first trimester. It would be up to your doctor to prescribe an antibiotic for the infection. A blood culture can rule out sepsis. See your doctor for the abdominal cramping you are having for a diagnosis. Do not self treat with left over antibiotic especially when pregnant.
