i was at a dr visit for my baby pushing down, and she told me last week i had a amount of protein in my urine but now there is just a trace. i was wondering what it means when theres protein in your urine. thank u jessica
protein in your urine is a sign of a kidney problem. It can also be an indicator of preeclampsia: : A condition in pregnancy characterized by abrupt hypertension (a sharp rise in blood pressure), albuminuria (leakage of large amounts of the protein albumin into the urine) and edema (swelling) of the hands, feet, and face. Preeclampsia usually begins in the third trimester and can be very serious on your health and your baby's health. Call your Dr. immediately if you have signs of high blood pressure or if you have swelling in your hands, feet, or face.
