A trace of blood in my urine

hi,,, since my 20 weeks appointments and my urine being checked (my local doctor tests this every visit) i have had a trace of blood in my urine. at 20 weeks the doctor sent it away for further testing to pathology and it come back that no further action was required. at my 24 week appointment the same thing happened. nothing was done about this.

i have my 28 weeks appointment and im convinced it will be the same if it is nothing to worry about y is it showing up? what causes this? if its not a concern y do i feel as though it is?
i have no smelly,,, stinging, burning urine passes,, the only drink i drink is water ( 2 or more litres per day) and the odd glass of lemonade

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. During pregnancy your kidneys may not filter as effectively as they can normally and this can lead to you showing blood in your urine. If it has been investigated and they have found no other problems then it is nothing to worry about and it will settle after birth. Best wishes, Alex.
