Hi and welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thank you for your query
, I understand your concerns and I will try to help you as much as I can.

Urinary infection may increase the risk of premature labour or may trigger contractions but it should not cause malformations of baby and if there are such features seen on ultrasound then this is not caused by infection. These findings are still nonspecific and it may not mean anything, but further frequent follow up is required to see if problems will occur. At this point there is no concerning findings.
I hope I have answered you query. If you have any further questions you can contact us in every time.
Kindly regards. Wish you a good health.
