You are carrying 5 months pregnancy with moderate anemia and UTI.
Low Hb may cause IUGR or low birth wt baby/preterm delivery, excessive vaginal bleeding during delivery or PPH, anemia later in infancy,infection prone to baby,easy tiredness/breathing prob etc.
UTI may cause ascending intrauterine infection if untreated and may cause miscarriage/stillborn.
So need to treat properly with some other investigation like Complete blood count including DC, Ig E level,Chest X ray to rule out underlying pathology in the lower respiratory tract.
Take safe antibiotics like Amoxyclav/Ampilox/Azithromycin/Phexin etc with Asthalin/other inhaler if needed and syp Uriliser mixed with water TDS may improve your clinical condition.
Maintain personal hygiene,drink plenty of water,empty bladder in time,take Iron & calcium supplements throughout the pregnancy. Also periodic check up to your doctor.
Be well.
