In brief: Yes.

Nitrofurantoin, or "macrodantin" or "macrobid" is perfectly safe as a treatment for asymptomatic bacteriuria or urinary tract infections in pregnancy.
It has a long record of use and is generally effective unless you have a resistant strain. Make sure you get a test of cure if you're pregnant.
