This past week I have been noticing bubbles in the toilet every time I go potty. Is this something I should be concerned about?

I don't know if it really means anything, since peeing into toilet water isn't a clean catch sample. But I learned in vet tech school that if you shake up a cup of urine and it stays foamy it can indicate a high amount of protein in the urine.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

This is going to sound strange, but are you peeing hard, like pushing it out and it sprays in the toilet? Cause that will cause your pee to foam, and look like bubbles are in it.

This is what I'm kind of afraid of. I was on bedrest for a month with DD due to high blood pressure, everything else was fine. The day they found protein in my urine was the day they decided to induce me. I was 38 weeks then, right now I am only 31. So far my BP has been normal but climbing at every appointment. I suppose I should call the clinic in the morning.
