Im 12 weeks pregnant and today I went to routine OB check up my doctor told me I had protien in my urine. She said she would send more urine to the lab and if that still came out abnormal I would have to collect urine for 24 hrs so that could be tested. I asked excatly what that meant and was it bad or it had to to with my baby. SHe said no that it wasn't that there was something wrong with the baby, but it cld be signs of pre-clamsia (which I have a history of from my first), but it was unlikely cuz it was too soon in pregnany. It could also be urine infection or kidney problems. I'm really worried esp. cuz I had a c-section last time cuz of pre clamsia. Has anybody expierenced this before??
I also had preeclampsiaand my protein level was one a few weeks before I was checked into the hospital. The doctor said 0 or 1 is fine, but they kept a close watch because of my BP. Maybe yours was just 1 and they are being precautious.
From everything I've read you are WAY to early to have any signs of preeclampsia. I wouldn't worry too much.
