You have a simple urinary tract infection. As such urinary tract infections are more common in females because of a short urethra or urinary tract. Infection is increased more in pregnancy because of decreased hygiene and immunity. So, all you need is a good dose of antibiotics. Do not take any antibiotics on your own because you need to consult a doctor to get antibiotics which are safe for your baby. I hope this will help you. All the best.
