I heard a wierd rumor...

Is it true your urine turns a darker and smells stronger when your pregnant?? Because I had that before I found out I was prego and didn't even know this was a sign??

  • That can also be a sign of a yeast infection, Urinary tract infection, and so on. It's not a specific pregnancy sign, although with the hormones changing it can cause urine to change too.

  • It's also a sign you're not drinking enough water.

  • Could be what you've ingested as well - vitamins in particular can do that. I don't think changes in urine have anything to do with being pregnant. Except for the frequency of course! :)

  • Your prenatal vitamins can cause changes in the urine color as well as the smell of it, the outside of the bottle should say so.

  • When I got pregnant with my dd this time my pee turned almost clear....b/c I was drinking lots of water and no other types of drinks.

    But the other ladies are right MANY things can change the color of your vitamins, infections...drinks etc...

  • I agree with all the ladies.

  • That description of urine can be a myriad of different things. Infection, pregnancy, imbalances, etc.

  • My mom told me that your urine turns lighter... but I've had both since I been preggo... :\ didn't help much I guess...
