hi there, if these are your gram staining results of urine analysis then gram-ve bacteria presence suggests that you have asymptomatic bacteuria which is probable in pregnency but is also significant and you need to consult your concerned physician and get a culture and senstivity done and start appropriate antibiotic as it may lead to infection of the kidney especially during pregnancy. Take immediate action and do not procastinate. Take care
