protein

i have just had an ante-natal with the doctor. he checked my belly size 'thinks' its ok - measures at 24/2days but wants it checked by the midwife this coming monday.

Also found a trace of protein in my wee and this time my sample has been sent of for test.

What could this mean ... a 'trace' doesnt sound much to me.

Blood pressure is now 106/60 - which has gone up slightly.

Should i be worried at all ?

Does your dr work with preggers or is he a "normal" GP?

I think there will always be more protein in preggers wee, I am sure things are just fine!

i think is a 'normal' gp and the one i was told i should see was on holiday ...... he seemed to know what to do but seem a little flustered so he could just want my belly sized checked coz i said i thought it was big. he measured me lying down - it dont look so big then but when i stand up i feel hugh !

just read up on the net .... it could be an indication on how my kidneys are performing. a trace could mean they are working harder .. poss due to a urine infection - on another thread i a few weeks back i was asking about stabbing pains after i had wee'd. these passed on there own after a couple of days but had happened again monday - could this be linked ? .. i havent had any yesterday or today though.
i didnt mention them to the doctor coz i forget - but i think i will on monday when i go back.

I had sugar in my wee at about 12 weeks and I have to have a blood test done every 2 weeks now to check on sugar levels to avoid gestinal diabetes.

Could you have a water infection?

Kizzy, you will probably know from previous that you are more prone to having urine infections when pg, I seemed to have one every other week, taking turns with thrush - so my 'bits' were never right whilst pg!!

Have you tried cranberry juice? It will flush it all out and I think its something to do with the acidity kills the bacteria. You will only need a couple of glasses for a couple of days and you should be right as rain :))

They have to cover their backs when sexing now, one couple near me were talking about suing when they were told they were having a girl and it turned out to be a boy! :D

Hi Kizzy

I have had 5 water infections so far, each time I had blood and protein in my water. As the dr has sent it off you should have the results back in a few days, all they can do is give you a course of antibotics, which are safe to take whilst pg. That back ache dose sound loke an infection to me!

Try not to worry, as for your bp its fine, within normal limits and it will increase slightly during pg, only need to worry if it gets around 140/90 and there is protein in your water.

Take Care

Protein In water-help needed

Hi Girls,

Need a bit of help and advise if possible, I had an appt last Monday another scan and they found traces of protein in my urine, the consultant said not to worry got me to do a fresh sample and said it would be sent for testing and if there was a problem they would contact me. Anyhows I expected to hear the next day or at the latrest the day after if there was any problem. As I didn;t assumed all was ok, me and DH went away Friday and come back today and there is a message from my GP saying I must contact him Tuesday.

Can anyone advise on what this could be am going out of my mind with worry and cos bank hols can't do anything until Tuesday. Have had a check on the internet and decided to stay away as it all seems to be scare stories!!

Hi ya here's hoping, i'm a nurse and is a patient has protein in the urine its usually a sign of a urine infection like the other girls said. Drink lots of water to flush your kidneys and they will prob prescribe a short course of antibiotics to help clear it up. xxxxxx

if you so worry hh why not contact the midwife on-call for advise and what it could be. the midwife sometime will have your notes of result send to them so they could find out what it's all about

just like the girls have said it normally an infection. try not to worry.

Protein in urine...?!

Hi, has anyone had protein in their urine whilst pregnant?

When I went for routine antenatal last wednesday she sent me to hospital to have a more thorough check as she was worried that I am measuring 6 weeks bigger than I am and that I am weeing about 35 times a day! (and night!). Went in again on the Thursday for a scan, which shows that the baby isn't much bigger (thank goodness!) but that I have a lot of fluid in there which they want to keep an eye on. Then did a 24hr urine analysis and back in on Friday morning for glucose tolerance testing.

Got results today and fortunately glucose test all fine but I have protein in my urine. They want me to go back in this afternoon for further checks and to see a doctor.

Has anyone else had this?

Anyone had lots of fluid in there too?

Any advice gratefully received :smile: xxxxx

RE: Protein in urine...?!

Hi Dusky,

Traces of protein in the urine is not uncommon especially during pregnancy. It is sometimes a symptom of a urinary infection but it pregnancy it can leak in to the urine quite easily as the kidneys function slightly differently during pregnancy.

It is important however that you are monitored closely - and that's what seems to be happening. So keep in contact with the unit, and ask them to answer you questions as they arise.

Let's know what they say.

Thank you very much Paul. When I went yesterday (and having waited for 3 hours to see somebody!) the Dr said that he didn't know why I was weeing so much, or why I had the pains (mainly on the left hand side of my tummy) when he prodded me and that I didn't have protein in my urine... I said that the midwife had said earlier that day that I did and he couldn't really answer me (to be honest he was a very strange dr, had heard a few people complaining about him in the waiting room... anyway...) he was just going to send me home but then the midwife came in and said that she would make me an appointment with a consultant for next week.

All very odd but hey ho, all seems ok... xxx

Hi Dusky, I have had protein in my wee quite a lot too. Not had any infection though, but mine may be related to high blood pressure. Sometimes it's there and sometimes it's not though. It can be casued by your urine sample being contaminated with some vaginal secretions too, which is why they like you to do a mid-stream sample. As long as it isn't a high reading, then there isn't anything to worry about. Dehydration can cause it too, and weirdly enough can cause all the weeing too. The more you drink the more dilute your urine and it doesn't irritate the bladder so much so you don't get the urge to wee.

So, keep drinking plenty, and try not to worry about it, (easier said than done I know!) Hope everything else goes perfectly!

Thanks Mrs Smiff :smile: I am sure it will all be fine. I do drink about 2.5/3lt a day (but stop drinking completely at 4pm in the hope that I won't wake up every hour in the night, but strangely this doesn't seem to affect it...) no tea/coffee etc. The only suggestion the doc said, to try and reduce the amount of weeing, was to try and hold it!! Well, I have done that occasionally and it really hurts X(

Thanks a lot for your reply xxxx

Your kidneys are a bit like a sieve and normally protein molecules are too big to get through the sieve and show up in your urine. They can appear however if your kidneys are under a bit more pressure than usual, like for example having a little person lodging in your tummy! Another cause can sometimes be infection where inflammation lets protein through the sieve.
