Hi Craze...,
Thanks for posting your query.
You should be careful, The process of labour can start full blown any time. It takes about 12-14 hours in first and much less in subsequent pregnancies.
Ketones in urine are probably due to poor intake.
Please make sure that you have enough dietary intake to sustain yourself well.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be happy to solve your further queries. In case you are satisfied with my answer, please close the discussion and put a rating for it.
