I am 31 weeks pregnant. With my first pregnancy I developed mild pre-eclampsia at 36 weeks. At this week's ante-natal appointment they deteced some protein in my urine and sent it off for further analysis. I have just found out that it came back as 24 units, the doctor says this is just out of the nromal range. I have to go in and do a 24 urine collection
I am gutted as I thought I was doing really well this pregnancy. I have no swelling, no headaches, my BP has occasionally been a little high but nothing terrible. I was all set for midwife led care and a natural delivery in teh MLU. Now I am all sad and shaky and about to leave for the hospital.
Google is not heling me find out information about protein levels. When are they really worrying? Is the doctor jsut being very cautious? Please help me find info before I go in .
We are back from the hospital which in its self is good news. My BP was perfect but there is still protein in my urine so I have been sent home with lots of pots in which I must squeeze every drop of my pee over the weekend (lovely). I am also waiting on some blood results and they are going to call me tonight.
Touch wood all is OK. The doctors were really pleased about the BP as it would be very rare to have pre-eclampsia with such low BP .
