I get urine, bp , weight and for previous pg fundal height. They aren't measuring me this time because with twins it wouldn't mean anything and they do an u/s every month and measure growth that way for both babies. There is so much that they can tell from a simple urine test. It should be standard!

For each kid I've had a different OB and they've all checked my urine for protein. I have a history of Pre e and PIH so with the last two kids, I've also had to do the 24 hour urine collection.

I would mention it to my Dr. or new Dr. immediately that you have a history and would like to be checked. That is dangerous!

Urine check at every appointment and fundal height measurements at the last few, though I don't give much merit to the fundal measurements.

It might depend on region or state as well.

I remember with my first, I actually used to just pee on a stick and do my only little test for every midwife appointment (they clearly got rid of that).

I'm not too worried about not having it checked every appointment, but that may be my dislike of peeing in a cup speaking up - lol. I'm sure if they thought something might be wrong, they'd have me do it. Like if I was swelling or something like that.

And the whole protein in your urine thing is also effected by not drinking enough water.

I've never had to do a urine test as well, but I asked my oh so dismissive OB about it and he told me that they only really do urine tests if they know that the mother is at risk for protein in the urine, but I really didn't believe that since the OB that I had was a monstrous dillhole. So for our next OB appointment with the new doctor, I'll be asking her the same thing, along with tons of other questions that the hubby and I have thought up of.
