    My sister had all these too & she was monitored just to be on the safe side as protein or blood can be a sign of Pre eclampsia.

    I am sure your MW is keeping an eye on it.

    Well no, they sent my urine off for analysis and have given me some antibiotics just be on the safe side in case of infection. I've got to call my doctors on Thursday to get the results and check they are the right ones.

    I had keytones in my urine when I was in labour with DD it is to do with your liver (or kidneys can't remember which) and processing your body fat, i.e. you haven't eaten enough and your body is having to process stored fat for energy not sure what it means in pregnancy but they said I wouldn't have enough energy to last the labour out. I had protien in my sample late in pregnancy with Will several times forst few it was just a low level but in the end they did a 24 hour collection in the end to make sure everything was OK (it was) don't know about the others though, sorry.

    White blood cells tend to mean an infection, although that said I had a high white blood cell count when pg & my doctor put it down to being pregnant.
    Ketones are your body using its own fat stores as an energy source.

    Protein/blood can be a sign that you might be over stretching yourself

    I keep getting a trace of protein in my wee, they sent it off to check it but came back clear.
