Nephrologist 's  Response
some amount of dialatation of upper ureter (hydronephrosis) is normal in pregnancy.
As your wife is not having pain typical of renal colic she may probably not have renal stone.
Increased urge to pass urine may be due to urine infection ( for which she is already on antibiotics) or may be due to pressure of gravid uterus on the bladder9 which is normal).
Anyways complete the antibiotic course , get a Urine Culture test.
Take care
