How will Enterococcus bacteria in urine affect foetus during pregnancy?

Hi
I have been prescribed Mox 500 MG thrice a day for 5 days. I am 34 weeks pregnant. It is as a result of urine culture test (Enterococcus species = 60,000 cfu/ml). How will this bacteria affect the foetus? Is it absolutely necessary to take these medicines?
