  • I didnt have blood in my urine but did have protein. It could lead to pre-eclampsia, which could be bad for the baby cause your blood pressure goes up and it stresses the baby out. It usually comes from stress and my doctor said for me to just lay down like all the time and not excercise anymore cause it makes your body work harder. It went away when i quit working but when I was 37 weeks it came back and when i went for my check up the my bp was really high so they did a c-section and took out my baby. we were both fine and the only way to cure pre-eclampsia is to have the baby. So just dont be stressed out and relax and it should go away.

  • could it still be pre-eclampsia even though my blood pressure isn't really high? I mean it is higher than my usual, but not high in general.
