How do you know if you are leaking protien into your urine!? a little TMI

I'm almost 33 weeks pregnant and my urine has somewhat of a strange smell to it. I was just wondering what this could be. My doctor doesn't do a urine sample every time I'm in, which I think is some what strange. When I was pregnant with my daughter they did a urine sample with every visit. How do you know if your leaking protein into your urine. If you are what does this mean?

  • odor to the urine is often from something you have eaten or drank. Asparagus is a common example. You don't know if there's protein in the urine without doing the test for it. Ask the doc next time you are there why they aren't doing it.
