Yes I am A LOT calmer knowing that protein or a trace of it can come and go, it's made my weeker a little easier to get through:) Tomorrow is the big day, 33 week milestone!!

Mine went 1+ at 34 weeks and then 2+ at 36 weeks. My BP didn't go up until 37 weeks and then protein was negative. At 38 weeks my BP was higher, so we induced. Still no protein though - who knows? Never officially diagnosed with PE b/c my symptoms didn't happen at the same time.

I know that's not totally reassuring to you, but just letting you know that protein can come and go.

I had trace, nothing, 1+, trace, 1+, it just bounced around from week to week. For some crazy reason my OB never did a 24 hour. But it didn't just go trace, 1+, 2+ if that helps. :)

I had trace last time at 14 weeks... they had me do a 24 hour urine and I am waiting for the results myself. No one seemed to concerned, just cautious... I know these "marker" times are really hard to get through. 18 weeks was when it all week wrong for me and I am at 16 now and the anxiety just keeps me up...

I have had a trace for a month now. I am waiting on results of my 24 hr. urine. I to am getting close to were I had my last baby I had him at 35 but started getting really sick at 34 weeks and I am 33 weeks. So I know what you are going through.

Oh my gosh you don't know how much your responses have helped me, I feel a lot better now:) I know it's normal to be worried when I'm almost to where I had my son but I am feeling better today and just thinking of holding my little girl in my arms, that helps:)

I had trace very often in the 3rd trimester...maybe like 8 out of 10 times. They said it was normal during pregnancy and only to worry if 1+. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that everything is good from the 24hr.

Everything I've heard and read says that trace is nothing to worry about...but - I worry about everything, so I'm sure I'd be nervous too. You'll get an official amount shortly after your 24 hour - so try and hang in there.

Baby looks good and they're taking good care of you - keep thinking about the positives.
