Dark Urine during pregnancy

Dark urine during pregnancy
What is dark urine during pregnancy?

It’s when you look down into the toilet bowl after you pee and, instead of seeing the usual light-yellow color, it looks darker or murkier. Urine tends to get darker when you’re dehydrated because the lack of water makes it more concentrated.

What could be causing my dark urine during pregnancy?

You probably just haven’t been drinking enough water, says Karen Deighan, MD, FACOG, department chairperson of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital of Loyola University Health System. When you’re pregnant, you need to drink even more water than you did pre-pregnancy. “Even if you think you’re drinking a lot, you may not be drinking enough,” says Deighan.

Hyperemesis gravidarum—severe morning sickness that causes excessive vomiting—can make you severely dehydrated. About 1 in every 200 pregnant women experience this condition, and it usually occurs in the first trimester.
