Hi there, I gather from your history that you had urine infection before you concieved and received treatment for the same. Except for bacteria in your urine rest every thing is normal. Now if you are still suffering from urine infection then it would be better to get a urine analysis done for routine and microscopy and if infection is present then get a culture and senstivity also done. Your gynecologist will prescribe you some antibiotics which are safe to be taken during pregnency and you should take oonly those. besides that also maintain personal hygein and drink plenty of water. UTI during pregnency should not be neglected as it can lead to kidney problems later. take care
