High Blood pressure and protein

Hi everyone!
I am 33 weeks pregnant and due to high blood pressure did some bloodwork and a 24 hour urine sample. All bloodwork came back fine but Dr. Said my urine had a little protein in it so she wants me to see a kidney specialist just in case. She said it just dpoesn't match with what blood work says, no preeclampsia or toxemia. Of cours e I am scared to death becasue I read that sometimes protein in urine can be congestive heart failure or bladder cancer. Hopefully it is nothing but has anyone experienced this before and if so what did Dr. do

Re: High Blood pressure and protein

You know, I had 2 different instances where they found traces of protien in my urine with my 1st, and I never even had high blood pressure. So they just did blood work and monitored me it only was found those two times. Nobody has any idea why, but that was a year and a half ago, and I'm just fine.
