29 weeks pregnant with fraternal twins. Having blood in urine, braxton hicks contractions. On procardia. Suggestions?

I am 29 weeks pregnant with fraternal twins. I noticed my urine had blood in it but I just went to OB on Tuesday and had no signs of infections (already taking antibiotics for strep ). I am having a few braxton hicks contractions as I have been since 23 weeks but am on procardia. Do I need to call doc or just keep an eye on it?

Thank you for your query.
Haematuria during pregnancy could indicate a urinary tract infection , not necessarily detected by examination.
Also, it could be due to reasons like renal stones, compression by the pregnant uterus, or infection of the upper urinary tract.
You need to have a complete urine examination, including urine routine and microscopic analysis and a urine culture.
I think you should definitely call your doctor about it, as you are already having a high risk pregnancy , also undetected and untreated urinary infection would cause preterm labour.
Take care.
