  • Sounds like you need more liquid. Usually that's the issue.

  • You need to drink more water. Have you seen your OB? They can confirm if there is anything serious but I bet if you start drinking a bunch of water it will clear itself out.

  • What did you drink today?

  • Call your OB... NOW!

    It could be nothing or something serious. Please get off your computer and call your doctor.

  • Last time my urine was Amber, it was due to blood in it because of a kidney stone. I'd call a doc or labor and delivery immediately.

  • The amniotic fluid turns over every hour or two, so the baby is taking a lot of wliquid from your system. Drink more. But in case it's something really serious, check with your doctor also, soon.

  • You are not drinking enough water

  • You really need to call your doc!!!! Could be as simple as dehydration, or its blood in your urine, or something else. We are NOT doctors.... Make the call when the office opens!!!!!

  • No it's not. Can be anything from dehydration to a kidney infection. I hope you know that you should call your doctor.

  • Like the other ladies said, it never hurts to ask your doctor! But more than likely, he/she will tell you to drink more water anyway. Its good for you, especially this late in the game. You do NOT want to go into labor already dehydrated!
