I absolutely agree with the gals- but you know my thought on this is that since you've had a trace more than once- it might be a good idea to request a 24 hour urine. A 24 hour is required in the diagnosis of PE and is much, much more accurate than dipped tests, which are unduly influenced by how concentrated your urine is.
A trace is normal, and many healthy pregnancies have it- but many of us who developed hypertension had persistent traces that were a tiny clue that something was brewing. In any event, even it comes out entirely normal- it's always good to have a baseline to compare future tests to. Let us know how you're doing!
