Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have done urine analysis which revealed presence of 13 pus cells which suggests UTI.

Do not worry this is common during pregnancy due to stagnation of urine in the bladder due to pressure of gravid uterus over bladder.

If you have symptoms like burning ,increased frequency etc you may take appropriate antibiotics after consultation with your Gynaecologist.

Fasting blood sugar of 77mg is within normal limits and need not be worried about.

Ensure to drink more water to keep your urine dilute.
Dr.Patil.
