A pregnant woman might observe that her urine

A pregnant woman might observe that her urine has become dark and bright yellow in color. As most women are really worried about the health of their unborn during pregnancy, even this slight change can make them nervous and anxious. Causes First of all, let me clarify that dark urine during pregnancy is completely harmless. It is not associated with any kind of disease or infection or medical condition, especially when no other symptoms are accompanying it. One of the probable causes is dehydration. If the pregnant woman has not had enough water to drink, it can lead to dehydration. In such a situation, "urochrome", a pigment, increases in the urine, thus giving it a dark color. Another reason could be intake of certain supplements and prenatal vitamins by the pregnant woman. Vitamin B-12 is especially known to change the urine to become bright yellow in color. When a pregnant woman takes prenatal vitamins, whatever her body is unable to absorb from them, gets eliminated from the body through the urine. That's the reason why the urine gets a dark yellow color. Certain fruits and vegetables such as beet root, carrots and asparagus, may change the urine color to dark yellow too. Thus, a pregnant woman who is taking prenatal vitamins or is eating these fruits and vegetables will observe that her urine has become dark in color. Remedies if the condition is caused by dehydration, then simply increasing the fluid intake, will solve the problem. So, a pregnant woman should make it a point to drink two to three liters of water every day.
