Your daughter is having recurrent urinary tract infection.
Screen and treat the partner also.
Your daughter is also pregnant.
Effective control of infection is must because recurrent UTI's may cause refractory anaemia and the risk of abortion also increases by many fold.
Do a urine culture and sensitivity to choose the optimum effective antibiotics.
Backache may be due ti UTI or PID.
