Quoting Steph.Walsgrove:" The white bits are the protein, I had that a few times in my pregnancy but always dissapeared on its own"Ehh.. If it's protein, I'll probably be getting induced then. There's been a lot of it everytime I pee :( But then again, I'm ready to have the baby out and my mom isn't gonna be here much longer, so the sooner I have her the better. I just have really mixed feelings about being induce :?

I know its easier said than done but try not to worry about induction, I know you hear a lot of things but its no fun for people to spread stories of ones that went perfectly so you only ever hear the bad stuff. Just remember whatever happens it wont last forever and either way you'll end up with your beautiful baby in your arms :)

Yes I am a type 1 diabetic and they made me do 24 HR urine as soon as I found out I was pregnant for a baseline. I also have to do another one at 30 weeks to see where I'm at. The white stuff sounds to me like glucose or sugar your body is passing which is another indicator of pre-e or GD. However I am not a doctor and of course cannot give you a postive answer without observation. But just in case it is glucose I would watch Carb intake and flush your system out with a ton of water no juice or sugary things. Also if you have a high amount of protein then yes it can be visually seen as well.. so it could definitely be either one.. my best advice is to just flush your system out with ton of water! Goodluck dear and congratulations on LO.

Just figured I'd update ya'll. I turned in my urine sample earlier, and the results came back and said that yes, I do have pre-eclampsia, but that its not severe enough at this point to induce and they feel its safe for me to go ahead and just go to my Monday appointment and they'll re-evaluate then or something. But I guess the white things were the protein... Thank you guys for your help though! :D
