In brief: Depends on the abx

Most oral antibiotics fall into categories b or c which define the meds that have no known adverse effects on the developing fetus.
The sulfa meds are avoided near the end of pregnancy as they can cause jaundice issues after birth. The more specific information you can provide when you enter a question, the more specific the answer.
