Thanks for your query.

Let me congratulate yourself at the outset.

As far as the pus cells and the infection in the semen is concerned, don't worry about it. It is not going to affect your baby in any way.

Nature only allows healthy sperm to fertilize and produce fetus; no infection travels into baby.

However, I would encourage you to avoid sexual intercourse now (when you have infection); as they will increase the risk of genital infections in your partner. Genital infections during pregnancy is a bit concerning needing appropriate treatment.

Hope I have answered your query adequately. Should you have any more concerns, I will be available for follow ups.
