Brief Answer:

Happens in pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

Hi!

Thanks for posting the query.

This scenario is seen in many pregnant women. So if she doesn't have any symptoms then no need of treatment.

Some times a renal stone may also present with pus cells in urine, so during next ultrasound ask your doctor to rule out any chances of stones.

Give her plenty of fluids and water.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care,
