Odd question- urine color?

I know this is TMI, but did anyone have like bright urine. It's not so much dehydration, because it's not like super dark, but kind of bright. Also, the bigger thing is when I wipe I see the bright urine stain the toilet paper. I find myself inspecting the TP every morning to make sure it's urine and I'm not staining. It seems to happen the most condensed in the morning and get lighter throughout the day.

Did this happen to anyone else to the point where when you wipe you're staining the TP with urine?

I'm just concerned anytime I see anything on the toilet paper. I had staining really early on, that was definitely brown so I'm just paranoid now I suppose.

  • Urine is more concentrated in the morning so it has more of a yellow color and your vitamins will turn your urine colors. It's ok as long as your not bleeding

  • I agree with PPs, sounds like your vitamins.

  • This is a website about pregnancy. Urine is just the start of our conversations. So no, that is not even in the same zip code as TMI. 

    When you say "bright" do you mean bright yellow/brown? What color? 

    Bright Yellow can be the extra progesterone in your urine. Its common and normal. Also, your prenatal can turn your urine some interesting colors.

  • It's probably the B vitamins in your prenatal.  Mine is also bright yellow in the morning.

  • Yep, my urine went from concentrated yellow in the morning to super bright all the time.

    My prenatal turns my urine highlighter yellow without fail. I take mine at night because it is most convenient then so the combination of concentrated urine plus vitamin is crazy.


    I noticed it as soon as I started taking my vitamins... It normally fades throught the day, but it's still brighter than normal

  • I thought it might be the vitamins, but I wasn't sure. I mean I feel like I should be drinking enough water, but I might just up the intake incase. It's still weird seeing it every morning 

  • I think it is alright. I've had urine super orange like tang before following food poisoning months ago. Now that was creepy.

  • Yup, vitamins do this to me too. Nothing to worry about. As far as water, drink at least 8 glasses a day and your good to go!
  • I would say the prenatal vitamins. When I first for mine the chemist people told me not to be worried if I have more yellow urine it's just from the tablets. No need to worry .
