Brief Answer:
Urine test should be repeated

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
If no organism is isolated in urine culture test, then the urine routine and microscopy examination should be done to rule out any error in reporting or incorrect sample collection or contamination.
If the repeat sample show similar result, then Nitrofurantoin tablet should be given as antibiotic as it is safe in pregnancy.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
