It has been nine months since I delivered my son and I'm still spilling protein as well. I had a 24 hour done about 3 months ago that showed >100mg. I went to see a new perinatalogist and he recommended putting me on an ACE Inhibitor (Lisinopril) to see if we might be able to get that number a little lower. I just had another 24 hour done (after being on the meds for a little over a month) and my protein came in at 64.5mg! So, in my case, that has definitely helped! The only thing though is that these meds are not safe during pregnancy so, I'm not sure what they would use if anything during pregnancy.
Congratulations on your pregnancy, I hope that the next 7 months are very uneventful [:)]!! I'd definitely take Nancy's advice and locate a high-risk OB!
