    Hi guys
    help!!!!
    ive just seen my midwife at my 28 weeks visit & she has found protein & glucose in my wee.
    She has told me not to worry as the glucose could be a result of my lemon curd on toast & coffee I had for breakfast & the protein could be down to thrush.
    I have to go back next wed for another test & the midwife thinks everything will be ok. She has told me to eat my breakfast a few hours before.
    Im not panicking and cant stop thinking that I have developed diabetes or have pre-eclampsia.
    ????
    thanks

    I wouldn't worry too much at the minute hun. I've had glucose in my urine which was down to too many After Eights (oops)! A touch of protein doesn't mean much either although it can mean a urine infection - if midwife doesn't seem too concerned about it I wouldn't worry yet! :hug:

    As MW says hon nothing to worry about protein is very common and quite often nothing to worry about.

    Sure everything is ok x x

    No more lemon curd for you just before an antenatal!!!

    If she says don't worry, don't worry! They know better than all of us!!
