Very safe: I am extremely glad that you are choosing to use creatine as your bodybuilding supplement rather than an anabolic steroid. The former is for real athletes; the latter is for cheaters / lawbreakers. Remember that most women strongly prefer the "natural bodybuilder" look, feel, and attitude. Best wishes.

Creatine: Creatine is safe but can promote muscle tears if you are lifting heavily.

May be a sign : Women may have protein in the urine for many different types of reasons. Some include a urine infection. Some women have underlying medical condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes or lupus that causes this. In pregnancy women can develop pregnancy induced high blood pressure and this often accompanies protein in the urine. So this should definitely be followed by a physician if it develops.

No: Although food poisoning can be miserable in general it will not hurt the fetus. Most cases can be managed at home and resolve in 24-48 hours. The key is to avoid dehydration. If you develop fever, have bloody diarrhea, have contractions or can not stay hydrated then yes you should be seen in the hospital.
