Our expert says:
Urinary tract infections can cause preterm labour. Thus, if you have any contractions or 'show' you should see your doctor immediately. If the urinary tract infection is treated, the risk should be removed though. The bladder infection will not be transferred to the fetus and 1 cm of dilatation is not very great, so there would not really be a risk of infection to the fetus.
