Hello,

If your urine is yellow as well as your hands, you need to consult your doctor.

The yellow color could be due to a simple cause like the increased intake of Vitamin B (I presume you are taking vitamins because of your pregnancy).

But it can also be due to an increase in the level of the enzyme Bilirubin in your blood. In many pregnant women, a form of jaundice called cholestatic jaundice occurs - you need to get a blood test to rule this out.

If your bilirubin level is normal, then the yellow color is due to the vitamin B and you have no cause for worry.

But, please consult your doctor and ask fer the blood test.

I hope this helps.
