    Yep every appt from 30 weeks. I think it isn't standard care. We are private so there may also be a difference there.
    If your worried about it ask ur ob, :-)

    My hospital doesn't do the pee test until 36 weeks unless you need to (eg high blood pressure). My GP did one at the very beginning along with my pregnancy bloods but I haven't had one since.

    Check up at 34+2 today and still no urine requested. Blood pressure is 95/60 so probably no PE concerns still I guess.

    I'd say definitely no pe concerns with bp that low!

    I haven't had too... And I am 38 weeks. I would assume its because of your GD... But I have found that different hospitals have different procedures... So could just be hospital policy

    I don't have gd and my doctor does it, I think each doctor/hospital is different!

    I think different obs / hospitals / doctors, different policies.

    Mine had the tests in the bathroom, it was each patients responsibility to test urine. Then report any protein or sugar during your appointment.

    I hated it, cause I freaked out every appointment, cause I always had trace protein. But bp was always low ish.

    It must just be a policy thing. I've seen a (different) private OB both times and low BP both times. No GD with DD, but tests every week for quite a lot of the 3rd tri, this time I have GD but no urine tested yet. I don't think it's that they are forgetting either, as they remembered to give me my GBS swab to bring back next visit (ick!).
