Kidney infection can be cause when UTI extends upwards and affects the kidneys, it can also happen due to kidney or ureteric stones or stasis of urine due to obstruction by enlarging uterus. A kidney infection can have serious implications during pregnancy, so it's important that you stay under your doctor's supervision and take treatment. Regarding growth of twins , consult your doctor for investigation and advice. It's not posssible to comment on the same without looking at all the reports and an examination
