24 hr urine catch


Hello ladies this is my first post on the second tri board 😊
Iím 14 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my third baby. This pregnancy is a little different because I went in to it with well controlled type two diabetes ... my last pregnancy I ended up with gestational but it was well controlled by my diet. Well this time because I have type 2 they sent me to maternal fetal medicine. Everything looked great but they want me to do a 24 hr urine collection ... any idea why? Should I be worried ? Iíve never had high blood pressure or pre eclampsia and I thought thatís why they would do these tests .

As diabetics our chances of developing Preeclampsia are increased often by spilling protein in urine alone (which happened to me and I was induced at 36+6 spilling protein but blood pressure was good)

Therefore at the beginning of pregnancy they collect the 24 hour urine so they will have a comparison towards the end. As they will have you do it again and definitely if you are spilling during the routine sample at each appt or if levels are off.

Btw I hate the collection
