I know FMU is supposed to be concentrated... I'm starting my 6 hour hold for when I wake up in the morning and was wondering...

A lot of women say they wait for their urine to be dark... Like apple juice looking... So I'm not drinking liquids until I test...

Does dehydration = concentrated??? Is it good to eat something salty so I'm more dehydrated???

Please let me know... Thanks!!!

Dont dehydrate yourself dear. It really isn't good for you. The hold should definitely be enough for you to test. I personally do not recommend you dehydrate yourself for a test. Many women just take fmu and test with that. I didnt get a bfp with my dd with fmu either I got it at 2 pm not even holding. Test with fmu then if you get a bfn then wait and test again. Gl!

I should add with my test I never drank many fluids anyways. Im just not a fan of drinking anything. And when I tested my urine definitely was not apple juice color. It was almost a lemon color.

Concentrated is just from holding it for a long time - like overnight. But you don't want to do anything that is going to dehydrate yourself. No need to eat salty food or deny yourself liquids if you really need them.
