Routine Pregnancy Tests And Scans



URINE TEST (URINE ANALYSIS TEST)


A urine test is very common and routine in pregnancy to check for any infections, sugar levels (to check if there is diabetes), ketones (may show up if you are not eating enough or vomiting a lot), albumin and protein levels (show up if there is preeclampsia), bacterial infection (which causes damage to the kidney’s resulting in inefficient functioning of kidneys).

A urine sample is collected in the clinic or lab in a jar (midstream urine sample will be tested for pregnancy conformation (that is hCG hormone). It is advised to clean yourself the area first, pass little urine there outside, and then pass it in the jar).
