Common Questions and Answers about Protein in urine pregnant woman

protein

i went to my doc yesterday for a regular prenatal appointment, and he noticed that i have signs of protein in my urine. i have to go for another urine test today. what exactly does this mean? i know that it is a sign of pre-eclampsia and i have been swollen a lot lately. other then that i feel fine. do i need to be more cautious about what im eating??
In the MSK kidney the collecting ducts have very small cysts that do not allow the urine in our kidneys to drain properly. Protein esp in the form of meat is hard for you kidneys to digest as well. Many of us, me included try to limit our meat intake to no more the 6oz a day. Drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day and night is essential too.
Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Last time i was there, it was trace and the culture came back negative. They said it could be normal for a pregnant woman to have a little blood in the urine because of the baby. They also said if it was kidney stones, that i would know. i dont really have any smptoms of anythig, so i am hoping this is something that will clear up after i have had the baby. Has anyone ever expeienced this????
It would be about 2 weeks since the possible conception is I was pregnant. I've heard every woman is different in the amount of hcg levels and timing. I was not trying to get pregnant at all and I actually believe I probably can't get pregnant due to my endometriosis, so it is a surprise to think I would be.
It can occur without the signs of preeclampsia (which are usually a large increase in blood pressure and protein in the urine). Symptoms of HELLP syndrome include: Headache. Vision problems. Pain in the upper right abdomen (liver). Shoulder, neck, and other upper body pain (this pain also originates in the liver). Fatigue. Nausea and vomiting. Seizure. HELLP syndrome can be life-threatening for both the mother and her fetus.
The longer I know im pregnant and I feel pregnant the harder the thought of terminating it gets. Im in a relationship with a wonderful man who i love with all my heart. He has no children of his own and didnt want any but loves my kids to death. Now that im pregnant and the thought that we will have to terminate it he has uncovered feelings he didnt think he had not to mention he is strongly against abortion.
it also helps with getting preg, i on the other hand had to stop it because along with my pcos i also have diabeties and have protein in my urine so the nutrisionsit i went to see said i was eating too many proteins. but i started this diet on monday and today is friday and lost 5 pnds was 207 not 202. and i have not been exercising with this diet, and if you like jello u can eat it all day long sugarfree that is not regular.
u r right,in a way it is best to be fake pg for a few days,i just hate to hve AF earlier than it should,n that's happened a few times.Lots of baby dust to u too.Let me know how u fell day to day so i know what to expect.
I'll be 46 at the end of this month & just moved to a new state so I don't have the luxury of knowing any doctors. In the last 1-2 months I suddenly gained 40 + lbs & look pregnant. That seems to be where the weight all is. A urinalysis proved negative for pregnancy on Monday & with my 3 grown kids I did not gain this much weight &/or so fast. I just look pregnant & feel "full - heavy - tired & short of breath" most of the time.
I had my frozen embryo (5 day blastocyst) transfer on November 17th and am now 4 weeks pregnant. Last time in Sept, I was pregnant but the hCG counts didn't go up so they stopped growing. I didn't have any symptoms. This time I have totally lost my appetite. the only thing I can eat is a grilled cheese and maybe fruity tarty yogurt. I also have slight brown discharge when I wipe, I hope this is a good sign too. I have to go back on Monday to see if my hCG counts have gone up. I pray they do.
Hi my story is similar to most of yours i found out i was pregnant on the 21st of june, i found out my accident really as i was tested for a UTI and they found protein and blood in my urine so they did a pregnancy test, it was positive me and my hubby were over the moon as we had been trying 7 years unsuccessfully including 3 failed IVF attempts so to fall naturally was amazing.
A person who got pregnant naturally and who miscarries at 5 weeks or so might not even realize they were pregnant in the first place. Personally, I'm glad I did the clomid my first time through and had my son, because the alternative is SOOOOOOOO expensive, and frankly, painful. I had to move to injectibles and the financial and physical burden on top of the emotional one isn't something I want to repeat if I don't have to! Good luck to you!!! Hope everything works out well!
in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
An adult man tends to carry body fat in his chest, abdomen and buttocks, producing an "apple" shape. An adult woman tends to carry fat in her breasts, hips, waist and buttocks, creating a "pear" shape. The difference in fat location comes from the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. Fat cells are formed in the developing fetus during the third trimester of pregnancy, and later at the onset of puberty, when the sex hormones "kick in.
I know this happens when your body thinks your pregnant because of HCg. In other words, you can have HCg in your body like after a miscarriage that makes you have symptoms of pregnancy without actually being pregnant which is what happened to her after her miscarraige for a while. So it is really a mystery, until she gets that blood test (which is 100% correct right?) That's why my conclusion has drawn me to...
I had miscarriage in February and got pregnant two weeks later. I am now 21 weeks along. It happens!
He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
I've had light nausea as far back as I can remember but I get spells where it's worse than others. At the moment I feel extremely sick in the morning, I am not pregnant. It comes in waves and out of the blue. Its sometimes so bad that I can't think straight and feel like I'm going to faint. People around me think i'm a hypochondriac as the feeling goes after dinner. I suffer with anxiety and I notice that its worse when I'm having an attack.
Acupuncture session was enjoyable until a spaz of a woman came in the office and was talking so loud in the front office it literally echoed off all the walls (the office has 6 patient rooms with the tops off like an open-space and oriental music playing in the background). I couldn't believe how loud she was and how she went on and on about the election without taking a breath the whole 20 minutes of my trying to relax along with other patients - hope she ISN'T there Thursday!!
I got home and woke up with a raging UTI and blood in my urine. It was the weekend so I had to go to the emergency room. I tried to talk to the doctor about the possibility of the mattress being the cause, but he was not remotely interested in listening to me. After I see my GP again I will update as to whether I got her to order a urine elimination test for me. If she does, maybe I'll see if I can lie down on a gurney at the test center for the whole day. heh. Good times.
He has also just started going to the chiropractor for it as well. I had similar sensations in the same place when I was pregnant with our daughter. I also had sciatic nerve pain. I haven't had it since she was born. I hope this helps.
They also do drug screens when they do this (at least where I live) so that if a woman is abusing drugs while pregnant CPS can step in and the child can get the care it needs being born with an addiction.
Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Vets still live by the old standard of a prescription kidney diet which is low in protein and in phosphorus but more recent research indicates that too low of protein actually causes muscle wasting and supposedly shortens the life span of a CRF cat.(this is what I read so you be the judge). I believe that a good quality canned cat food such as Wellness no grain in Turkey, Merrick canned cat foods are acceptable for cats with kidney impairments. Azydol (sp?
I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
I know the feeling. I am 51 and have recently lost about 25 pounds, but have consisently exercised and taken buku supplements. I have noticed my tricep skin puckering at different angles as well as my thighs. You feel like "this is the thanks I get for watching my weight and taking so many supplements that my stomach is screaming!" Forgive me, but at least on a forum, I can be a "crybaby" rather than put up the good front that I do throughout my real day.
high BP (2 separate readings taken at least 4 hours apart of 140/90 or more) AND proteinuria (300 mg of protein in a 24-hour urine sample). Among other things, blood pressure and urine protein are checked at prenatal visits. It is important to go to every scheduled prenatal care visit to screen for pre-eclampsia and other conditions that may occur in pregnant women.
Been to midwife - Baby is well, but got protein in my "sample" and blood pressure is up, so got to go back on Monday for more tests. Also, keep getting headaches with affected vision and shoulder pain so bad, I could literally cry! Got to go back on Monday for repeat tests, and see GP asap re Shoulder. Also said, if I get any worrying symptoms, I should go to A&E urgently - Am soooo upset! And whilst I was going through all this, what was hubby doing?? Playing BLOODY GOLF!
I said I had a small bowl of cheerios (honey nut), banana and milk (in the cereal). She said that I was spilling sugar into my urine and for me to eat breakfast high in protein...like eggs....okay I can do that.. But now I'm wondering what the likeliness is that I may now have gestational diabetes? If so what will I be able to eat??? Do I cut out all breads, sugar, rice, -- basically carbs?? Is wheat bread okay? Should fruits be cut out? I love my bananas.
