I had an appointment today, well just now actually and they found protein and White blood cells in my urine. I know it could mean an infection, but antibiotic should fix this right? It doesn't mean they'll possibly induce me does it? Slightly worried it could mean something more serious. Anyone have any knowledge/experience?

Not sure about the white blood cells, but a few weeks ago I tested positive for protein in my urine (and my bp happened to be a little high that day, which could = pre-eclampsia). They sent it in for further testing and it turned out to be nothing... just a fluke. So the protein could end up being nothing at all. What did the dr say about it?

The midwives just said an infection most likely and I'll be treated once they have analysed my urine, which they sent to the lab. I have an appointment next week with my consultant so didn't know if I should prepare myself.

Hmm, I'm always associated protein the urine with pre-eclampsia too.  I had traces of it last pregnancy and had to do a 24 hour collection.  I'm sure if your dr. is having you wait until next week they didn't find elevated levels enough to worry them or make them suspect pre-e.  Keep us posted!

BP was slightly higher than usual. My usual is 100/60 and today it was 130/60 but I did take my DS to a birthday party beforehand. Other than that everything was okay.

No nitrates Sunny just the protein and White blood cells. That's why I am a bit puzzled.

I was thinking UTI with the white blood cells. There is usually protein in urine, but how high it gets is when the call it pre E. When I did my 24 hour urine collection with dd it was 540. The cut off for pre E is above 300 so I was induced that day. Good luck, I hope it is nothing!

Check this thread out... may be the start of a UTI. Sounds like you can have one and not realize it. http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/forum/topic103734.html

They have recieved a batch of results this morning, but they haven't been checked over yet. My results might not even be in there but I have to call back in one hour to see.
