Yes: Bladder infections can more easily progress to kidney infections during pregnancy. This is of greater concern because kidney infections may lead to preterm labor. It may also lead to a serious infection in the blood that is caused by the bacteria found in the kidney infection.

However, while this is a common problem, it shouldn't be considered 'normal' and if the problem is troublesome or interfering with daily life, there are a number of therapies available to treat this.
