  • Like dark orange?
    Sounds like you're dehydrated.
    Sometimes vitamins/foods alter the color.
    Try to drink a LOT of water and see how it looks.
    Moms need to really drink a lot during pregnancy.

  • Your urine is too concentrated. That means you need to drink more water. I have already been told a million times by doctor. It will make you really crampy an irritable if you don't start drinking water.

  • Not blood, thats not how peeing blood works, it would be fresh, pink or red.. Hows your water intake? You need a lot of water to keep hydrated while pregnant especially in the summer months..

  • Your pee can be a brownish color when dehydrated. Excessive iron intake can change the color to orange, green or brown. But either way its not blood. Thats not how peeing blood works. It would be fresh. Especially if your drinking as much as you say because you would be peeing frequently which makes no time for old blood to accumulate..

  • Anon 3:06- I couldnt remember, but I knew there was a certain obvious illness associated with brown pee.. I had completley forgotten about kidney failure. Good point..
