  • nope it is common to spill a little into your urine, as long as you dont have any other symptoms (blood pressure is fine your not swelling headaches that dont go away with tylenol and such) then I wouldnt worry. But I woul dbe more aware of the other things and not blow them off if they happen.

  • I had protein in my urine and my blood pressure was rising so they did blood test on me as long as you are not having swelling,blood pressure problems, or anything else then don't worry! But if you feel like your eyes are blurry,or headaches don't worry but If you have any of the other symptoms you should problay call the doctor A.S.A.P They might want to induce you!

  • Don't worry about it right now... they monitor it & will let you know if you should be concerned. Large levels of protine in your urine mean that you are most likely pre-eclamptic. I had this problem but not until I was 35 wks. But like I said... they will let you know. If you're concerned, then ask your dr.
