Hi and welcome to HCM. Congrats on your pregnancy. As you know 30 - 50 percent of people with NPS have protenuria and some tend to develop kidney failure with time. I would defenitely recommend that you have a blood test to loom at your liver and kidney functions, measure urine protein by doing 24 hour urine collection and regularly monitor your bllod pressure. Your local physician/ GP/ Antenatal nurse/ Obstetrician might be able to help you organise the above tests. Best wishes
