Vessels crossing the junction is one of the frequent causes of PUJO.
If treated properly, is unlikely to recur.
Pregnancy itself is a strainful condition to the ureters. The gravid uterus compresses the pelvic inlet and the ureters. This can lead to urinary retention. This requires no active treatment except changing the position every now and then. Try lying in left lateral decubitus position.
If you are very afraid, you can get a USG of the kidneys. But dont be afraid if there is hydronephrosis. (Because the size of kidneys will not become completely normal even after surgery).
After your delivery, you can get a DTPA renogram to confirm unobstructed drainage.
