according to your symptoms it is appearing that,
you got fever with chills because of urinary tract infection,
and probably it has spread to upper urinary tract also causing pyelonephritis,
as both these conditions are dangerous in pregnancy which can lead to preterm labor and can also affect the health of mother and baby you have to consult your doctor as early as possible and take treatment for it.
take care.
