    hi jojozep

    It is probably nothing to worry about. It is not unusual to have a small amount of protein in your urine when pregnant. It is related to the extra fluid in your body at the moment. However more than just a trace of protein it is also one of the signs of pre-eclampsia. If they did not say that your blood pressure is high then all is OK.
