It could be a bladder infection or pre-ecclampsia, depending on what else was found.

If you haven' t already had your baby, you probably will soon. I was induced with both my pregancies when they found protein in my urine.

I think it' s a symptom that your kidneys are feeling the pressure and normally birth happens soon, either by induction or a c-section.

Good luck.

Hi, it also happened to me last week, and the gynea wanted to keep me in hospital overnight to monitor me. Within hours my bloodpressure went through the roof and they did a emergency c-section. I was only 34 weeks at the time, but everyone is doing fine and growing well. Good luck!
