Has anyone got dark yellow/orange urine?


Since I got my BFP my urine has gone a darker yellow than normal but in the last 2-3 days it has gone REALLY DARK yellow, almost orange. I'm just recovering from the stomach flu so maybe I'm a bit dehydrated?

I can't help worrying though with a mc a few months ago and every time I wipe I have to check the color and nearly die of shock thinking it looks pink until I examine it properly and discover its just dark yellow.

Does anyone else have this? Help, I'm going mad!

Hi Raisin,
I only got my bfp yesterday and now i'm spotting ever so slightly (worried!) But i too have had really dark urine, yesterdays was orange,no doubt about it. Although i had a mammoth 14ish hours of sleep before so it was very concentrated. Not sure what it means but wanted to let you know you aren't alone

Mine is very dark but its because I am dehydrated, I have went off Tea, coffee juice everything. I am managing to force myself to drink milk and lucozade. If you up your fluid intake it should get lighter.

Ditto... All the time since getting pg hun!

I am no good at drinking enough fluids and since getting BFP mine is darker too and I also panic every time I go to the loo!

I know I should drink more but just never remember and I am not worrying about it.

Good luck with the pregnancy hun x

At the moment I'm not taking any prenatal vitamins but I'm taking folic acid pills. Maybe it's from that. The pills are yellow

It sounds to me like your unrine is very concentrated basically you need to drink lots of water and it should correct itself xxx

When pregnant your body needs more fluid to give to bubba and it gets this from what you put into your body. So of you are drinkig as normal you will be more dehydrated than normal, causing your urine to darken, increasing your fluids (water is the best) will be better for you, help your kidneys do their job and provide fluids to bubba, your urine will be more dilute and you will feel less tired and less worried I'm sure
