    The B vitamin in it will turn your pee bright yellow especially if you go to the bathroom soon after you take it... drink lots of water throughout the day.

    Ever since starting my prenatal vit back in June my pee has been neon yellow. No matter How much water I drink. I know if I forgot to take my vit because my pee won't be yellow!

    yep mine varies from that to very pale/clear think its the vitamin B or something, I take pregnacare too, when I did urine sample at 16 wk appt it was like that and mw said drink more lol she didnt even mention it couldve been that she knows thats what im taking but its true if i drink plenty its not that colour. Im drinking about 2 /3 litres a day too just thirsty anyway lol.

    I have this too from pregnacare. At my booking appointment my midwife asked me to do the pee sample right at the beginning of the appointment. It was sitting there right on the desk in front of me practically luminescent! So embarrassing having my day-glo pee sitting in the sample jar for the best part of an hour :lol:

    So now I take my vitamins *after* I do the sample. :D

    The joys of vitamin B. It's even worse when you have to give a urine sample to the MW and it looks like alien pee :rofl:
