    Talk to your doctor for any kind of tests if you are only a week away in general being pregnant makes you more susceptible to urinary tract infections of all kinds. Higher levels of the hormone progesterone relax the muscles of the ureters, causing them to stretch out. Your growing uterus may compress the ureters, making it difficult for urine to flow through them as quickly and freely as it normally does.

    Also later in pregnancy, the baby presses on your bladder, maks it hard to empty it completely when you pee. The upshot of these changes is that it takes longer for urine to pass through your urinary tract, giving bacteria more time to multiply and take hold before being flushed out.

    did your doctor test your urine for bacteria during your first prenatal visit, whether you have symptoms or not. If this initial test is negative, your chances of developing a UTI later in pregnancy are small. But if you're among the 5 to 7 percent of pregnant women who do have bacteria in their urine, you'll be treated with antibiotics to clear it out. If this kind of infection were left untreated, you'd have a 30 percent chance of developing a kidney infection during your pregnancy.
