This is seen in the first 3 months of pregnancy. Take enough of water, avoid sex, empty bladder more frequently. Regular health checks and urine test will avoid any problems. Take more green and coloured vegetables and sprouts

General Surgeon Dr. Rajinder Bajoria's  Response
As plenty of pus cell in the urine indicate you are suffering from urinary tract infection ( known in medical science) . First of all start taking plenty of liquids so that your urine out put increases & infection comes down.The risk of a urinary tract infection (UTI) increases during pregnancy, infection can develop as early as six week of pregnancy . As the uterus increases in size, the additional weight doesn't allow the bladder to drain urine completely. An infection can develop, and women generally experience a variety of symptoms such as painful urination, frequent urination and abdominal pain.

Urinary tract infections are one of the most common bacterial infections during pregnancy .Urinary tract infections are 14 times more frequent in women than in men. UTIs are associated with risks to both the fetus and the mother, including pyelonephritis, preterm birth, low birth weight, and increased perinatal mortality.

You can prevent UTIs in several ways. you should always drink plenty of liquids (water is the best). You should urinate often. Don't wait for long periods of time before you urinate. Always urinate after sexual intercourse. Go for culture sensitivity of urine ,which will tell you the specific antibiotic required. Then consult the gynecologist for safety of antibiotics in pregnancy
