Hello.: Hello. My understanding is that preeclampsia is defined as the new onset of elevated blood pressure and protein in the urine after 20 weeks of gestation. It often develops during the second half of a pregnancy or up to 6 weeks after the birth. It may be detected through blood pressure elevation and evaluation of blood/urine in the early stages. If you feel that nurse is being less than professional and the doctor is not willing to address it; you can talk to the medical facility's patient contact representative who is there to assist with this type of situation. I am sorry, I don't have a recommendatio for the urine sample problem. Congratulations on your pregnancy. ...Read more
