Thank you for your query.
Trace leukocytes in urine are common in pregnancy.
It is called asymptomatic bacteruria, and if untreated, can lead to preterm labour.
However, you have already been given the necessary antibiotics.
In best interests however, it is best to have a urine culture again, which would show persistent infection.
Frequent urination in the third trimester is the norm.
However, please increase your fluid intake, maintain perineal and toilet hygiene, have your blood sugars tested as well as get yourself screened for any vaginal infections.
Take care'
