In brief: Yes
Keflex or Cephalexin is ok to take during pregnancy.
Congrats on your pregnancy. May delivery go smoothly. The first three months are difficult after delivery because of fatigue and multiple causes, but remember that this too shall pass. Enjoy your little one and may god bless you and your family.
