Every appointment but like zubeldia said...they are not great at detecting much other than sugar & proteins. I KNEW I had a UTI but they insisted my urine was clear from the in-office tests...I suffered for 3 more weeks & the next time I went in I asked them to send that day's urine off to the lab...sure enough, I had a raging UTI...
my midwife makes me pee in a cup every time I see her for our check-up appointments. She is very much about getting the right nutrition and other things, so she makes sure my proteins are okay, for example.
I do it at every appointment but I know my last doc didn't do it.

Looks like you have had plenty of replays about piddling in the golden cup . I never had to at the MFM's but would at each appointment with my regular ob. (Your update) Makes more sense to only do it if there is suspicion.
I also have to every appt. which is fine b/c I always have to go to the bathroom by the time I get there anyways. Plus this is going to sound silly, but if I get a little more out of me I might weight just a little less, lol
