I went to the hospital yesterday cause I was feeling dizy, having weird spotty vision & my face,hands and feet were swelling pretty bad.. Also my urine was very yellow and I wasn't going to the washroom as much.. And when I went there my blood work was fine, but they said I have protein in my urine and I have to go back tuesday for it to be checked again and if its still there/worse they have to deliver me.
I've looked up a few things on this but I'm not getting a awnser..
My question is:
Since there is protein in my urine already will it go away by tuesday?
And what causes it?
Ps, I'm 37 weeks 4 days.
Someone tell me your experiance?

Look up Pre-clampisa or Toxcima it may not be spelled that way but I am very sure you have that because I had it with my first and had to do an emergency c-section at 34 wks. My baby was fine just very early. If you want to talk about it inbox me.
Around 35 weeks I started with swelling and felt dizzy. They took my blood pressure which was high. They diagnosed me with hypertension. I had to be put on bedrest. The bedrest helped and I ended up having my son at 39 weeks. But if I didn't go into labor on my own they would have induced me or c section because the day I had contractions there was protein in my urine which was the beginning of preeclampsia. But this is just my experience. Your doctors know what is good for you. Good Luck!!!!
It really depends on the amount of protein. Trace to plus 1 is normal in pregnancy but higher than that couples with your other symptoms is likely preeclampsia. Your baby will be fine being born at 37-38 weeks. Be careful and if you add abdominal pain to your symptoms, go back in ASAP!
There may be some because you are so far along in your pregnancy but it sounds like you are either dehydrated (drink water only and about a gallon a day) or you have high blood pressure which could lead to preeclampsia. At this point your baby will be fine if you need to be delivered. Did they check your Blood pressure?
When I was pregnant with my middle son, I had the same symptoms you described. I had protein in my urine and they monitored my levels for about two weeks. I had to collect all urine for 24 hours to have it tested, then do it again a few days later and whatnot. They told me that as long as my levels didn't increase, I was fine.
Sadly, mine did and I ended up being induced for pre-eclampsia. Thankfully, I was 38 weeks at that point.
