orange pee? adult content

so im 20 weeks pregnant, and starting about 5 weeks ago my urin turned a crazy orange sherbert color with a really gnarly smell. now im not dehydrated, on medication,or have an infection. there is nothing that would make my pee this color. but i discovered that if i constantly drink cranberry juice then it turns back to normal, but if i stop drinking it its orange again. my dr. has nothing to say about it.
has this ever happened to anyone? its just the weirdest thing

  • I think you need to see another doctor

  • What are you eating that may have orange coloring in it? Have you had your urine tested for a slight infection. Drink a lot of water & if you are concerned you could always see a Urologist. It sounds odd but probably has something to do with what you are eating. Maybe your Prenatal vitamin?

  • too much sugar? You might have a kidney infection if it clears up with cranberry juice.

  • You're positive you're drinking enough water? That is exactly what my urine does if I don't drink enough. You need to drink even more water during pregnancy.

  • i actually did switch dr.s now i have 3 midwives. and they have done 2 urin tests and a lot of bloodwork and still nothing. i was just wondering if maybe its from my prego hormones.
