Thanks for the query.
Urinary protein excretion is considered abnormal in pregnant women when it exceeds 300 mg/24 hours at anytime during gestation.Proteinuria documented before pregnancy or before 20 weeks' gestation suggests preexisting renal disease, While proteinuria after 20 weeks’ gestation may indicate preeclampsia.
ARBs like telminorm reduce intraglomerular pressure ( pressure inside kidneys ) which ultimately reduces the excretion of proteins.

Normotensive patients with proteinuria also should be given these ARBs,because low doses usually are well tolerated and do not usually cause symptomatic hypotension.

You should definitely be on this medicine but a consultation with nephrologist would be best for your further management.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
