Ketones in urine

(3 Posts)

I'm 22 weeks and every time i see my midwife i have ketones in my urine!

I'm eating like a horse, and have put on just over stone in weight. I'm not starving myself.I had morning sickness during the first 12 weeks, so i put the ketones down to that at first, but now i'm eating fine.

When i saw the midwife yesterday she didnt check my notes for previous ketones and just said to drink more water.

Any advice?

Hi - i had those too and they never did get to the bottom of it. are you eating breakfast (or whatever meal) before the urine test? i think they are more likely when you have an empty stomach.

my midwife gave me some of the strips so i could test myself at different times of day.

as long as the levels aren't very high, i think you and baby are fine.
