    Vitamins can change the color of urine. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids while preggo. but this is completely normal....if you have recently added vitamins to your daily routine.

  • I have the same problem. I drink tons of water. But if you worried ask your doctor at your next visit. He will give you the best answer.

    Beets - turn urine reddish
    Borscht (beet soup) - turn urine reddish
    Blackberries - may lead to red urine
    Rhubarb - can cause orange urine

  • I get that cause I'm taking extra iron from being anemic. idk... maybe that's what it is. prenatals have a lot of iron in them too.

  • Whenever my urine starts to look like that I drink lots and lots of water!!!!!!!!!. I was told once before that the reason it looks like that is because your not drinking enough Lay off the sodas and sugary drinks try drinking vitamin water if you don't like just plain water. Vitamin water is also 10 calories a bottle no sweat
