Canesten cream (clotrimazole) and Amoxicillin are both considered Category B drugs during pregnancy by the US FDA. This means animal reproduction have failed to demonstrate risk to the fetus, but no adequate studies have been performed in humans.

When clotrimazole cream is administered topically or vaginally it is poorly absorbed systemically and adverse events have not been reported following vaginal use during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

I believe the drug you are taking at the dose of 500mg three times daily is amoxicillin. There are no documented increases of risk during pregnancy when taking amoxicillin, and the dose of 500mg three times daily is within the appropriate range to treat a bladder infection. You should certainly inform your primary doctor that you are taking these medications, and also be sure to inform your doctor immediately if signs or symptoms of the infection worsen. Also contact your doctor if symptoms do not improve within 3 days of starting Canesten cream, or within 7 days if you are still not feeling well.
