Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Assuming that you are at least 28 weeks pregnant (because you had a GTT), then protein in your urine can be a sign of blood pressure problems, called preeclampsia. It is of little concern, though, if your blood pressure is normal. It is not a sign of a bladder infection taken alone. Also, an OGTT test result of 164 (if this was the screen) is considered abnormal and you need a 3 hour GTT. I am not sure what you mean by "baseline 2*" in your question.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
