I have never had to do a pee sample to test for sugar or protein. Is that normal? I'm 32 weeks. I do have GD but found out from glucose test

It would depend on your hospital. Every time I went to the hospital with my last preg I had to give a pee sample each time to check for protein etc

My last OB appt at 32 weeks I still haven't been asked to do a pee sample - I was sure my old OB with DD was testing at every visit by then but being 5+ years ago the memory is a bit sketchy. I have an appt on Fri and will be 34wks so curious to see if he wants a sample.
I think the main thing they are looking for is protein (which can be a pre-eclampsia indictor) and my blood pressure is good and no swelling so maybe that's why he's not testing.

I'm 35 weeks and haven't done a pee test. My blood pressure is always good, though, so I think that's why, no p.e. symptoms

My gp makes me pee in a cup every time I go (which is weekly now!) But my blood pressure has been above normal the whole time (it was pre pregnancy too though)

I'm 37 weeks and have not done a wee test at all this pregnancy either.

My doctors had me peeing for them left, right and centre. It got to a point where I thought they just had a weird fetish. But I have a family history of PE and the first time your BP goes high, they just keep on you like crazy. At least by the third trimester you can pretty much pee on demand.

My OB makes you give a sample every visit and has through the whole pregnancy. You have to hand it in at the desk when you arrive for your appt, I always feel really sheepish when it is heaps yellow and I think 'yep gotta drink some more water'!

That's good to hear I'm not the only one! Started freaking out my OB was forgetting something. My 2 friends at work have had to do it each time so I was getting worried

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, :-)
