Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health Forum.

The history provided here is incomplete as there are no proper units mentioned, the protein to creatinine ratio is not mentioned and the urine protein levels is not mentioned. Hence interpretation cannot be done whether it is normal.

A few facts about proteinuria during pregnancy has been provided for your information.

24-hour urine protein measures the amount of protein excreted in urine over a 24-hour period.

In non-pregnant individuals, abnormal total protein excretion is typically defined as greater than 150 mg daily.

In normal pregnancy, urinary protein excretion increases substantially, due to a combination of increased glomerular filtration rate and increased permeability of the glomerular basement membrane. Hence, total protein excretion is considered abnormal in pregnant women when it exceeds 300 mg/24 hours.

I hope this helps.
