I live close to you! I'm in Old Chelsea... Regarding the abx you were given in pregnancy, those particular ones are all safe for a baby in utero. I suspect the ultrasound was done to make sure your baby's growth was normal (a pretty routine thing if your pregnancy has been threatened by a severe infection) and also probably to confirm that you were not in preterm labour (by measuring the length of your cervix by ultrasound). A urinary tract infection that has ascended to the kidneys can pose a threat to the baby as it has a significant chance of causing preterm labour, which then can end in preterm birth. THAT, and not the antibiotics, would have been the riskiest thing for your son. I am a midwife - that is where my information is coming from BUT I AM NOT GIVING ADVICE - but if this is a big concern for you I urge you to talk to your family doctor...
I wish you and your son good health
