  • It means that you need to be watched carefully. Too much protein in your urine is a sure sign of preeclampsia.

  • I had some protein in my urine around 22 weeks and they said it was normal but when it gets to +3 that is dangerous for you and the baby so they will probably watch you pretty close now.
