Thanks. I figured the dipsticks aren't reliable, but what about the protein/creatinine ratio? They seem to really rely on that.

Congrats on #3 :D

Dipsticks are known to be unrealiable, which is why doctors really go by 24-collections.

Expecting #3

Postby meli554 » Mon Dec 01, 2014 04:29 pm

Well, I just found out that I'm pregnant with # 3. Feeling excited and terrified, lol

Had pre-e with both of my other two, induced at 34 weeks. Not sure what to expect with this pregnancy.

I do have a question if anybody knows: With both of my other pregnancies, all of my dip sticks and the protein/creatinine ratio come back within normal limits, and in both pregnancies, I had a PCR done WNL and then literally the very next day started the 24 hour urine collection which came back over 300. How can that be?
