Antibiotic safety

I'm 8 weeks pregnant and my doctor prescribed a short course (3d) of Bactrim for a UTI (totally asymptomatic).   Is this safe??? Everything I've read says do NOT take this while pregnant.

I was prescribed an antibiotic at 7 weeks for the entire duration of my pregnancy. I am now 17 weeks and doing fine. I think it depends on the circumstance that it was prescribed for that may outweigh the dangers. I only have one kidney with recurring bladder infections so it was needed to prevent one during pregnancy.
