  • I wasn't being rude. Sorry if it sounded that way :). I thought it was normal too. Maybe midwife's don't?

  • No you didnt sound rude. Its just funny that she tried to tell me that she doesnt know anyone who gets this done, and already i have 5 women saying they do and they thought it gets done all the time :-D

  • I should hope that everyone gets their urine checked.
    Because when you are pregnant its easy to catch
    a UTI (i caught like 5 my first pregnancy) and a UTI
    left untreated can really harm the baby.

  • I'm 35 weeks pregnant, and every single time that I've gone to the doctor, I've had to give a urine sample. I got offended after the first 3 visits and asked them if they were taking samples every time because they were afraid I was using drugs or something! Lol, th nurse just laughed and told me that they checked my protein levels and they also checked to make sure I had an appropriate level of THC in my urine.
