What causes blood and protein in the urine during pregnancy?

I am 7 weeks pregnant. I have blood and protein in my urine but no UTI and no discomfort. The doctor did an ultrasound of my kidneys and bladder but everything was normal. I had mild prominence of the right collecting system which the doctor attributed to the pregnancy. I originally seen the doctor for fever, body aches, and fatigue after morning vomiting & nausea. After one day abd a half of bland eating, I noticed the discolored urine. That s when the blood & protein was discovered. My urine currently looks normal but What be causing the blood and protein in my urine?

Hi, I think it is due to pregnancy that your urine is having blood and protein. Just get your blood pressure checked at frequent intervals because, sometimes high blood pressure can lead to protein in urine. Get your urine tested for routine and microscopy and a culture also to rule out any infection. Hope I have answered your question. If you have any other query I will be happy to help.
