according to your description there is possibility for pyelonephritis means infection of upper urinary tract,
possibly because of that her WBC are elevated,
may be she is having oilgohydromnios so that there is no enough room for the baby to move,
so better let her consult urologist to rule out the possibility of pyelonephritis and if present to take treatment,
she can take treatment to increase amniotic fluid after consulting gynecologist.
take care.
