What does that mean? at my last appointment my OB said there was some protein in my urine and my BP was a little high. just curious what that means? I'm 36 weeks pg now. Thanks!

those can be signs of pre-e. drink lots of water and try to rest as much as possible.

I had that too and it turned out to be pre-e at about 36 wks along. Just keep drinking lots of water like the pp mentioned and keep your feet up. I almost eneded up on bedrest but my bp was borderline.

Yes, sign of pre-eclampsia/toxemia.

do what everyone else said in addition to HIGH PROTEIN DIET which can reduce/prevent pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) - high BP.

Read about Dr. Brewer's theories and diet here:

not to scare you but i had severe pre-eclampsia and delivered a 2 lb baby at 31 wks. they took her out b/c of high blood pressure and tons of protein in my urine. rest, rest, rest and drink lots of water. you should be fine since your 36 wks along. good luck!!!
