I feel a bit silly for asking this, and sorry if it's too much info.
I'm 37 weeks pregnant and just went to the toilet for number 1s. When I wiped the paper was quite yellow. I don't know about anyone else, but usually anything that's there is clear.
I was wondering if this is a sign of something to come or if it just means my pee was really yellow. Lol.

Yellow when wiping

Did you look at the color of the toilet water to SEE if the pee was yellow?
Try drinking heaps of water that way it wont be so yellow and you will be able to tell if its wee or other fluid.

It was a little but not really so. When I wiped it was like nothing I had really seen before. Thanks for the tip and I'll see what happens.

Hey there i'm 40 weeks and have the same thing and drink lots of water...so have been wondering the same thing, so just letting you know your not the only one so it could be normal. Usually i would think it was due to vitamins cos you know when you take a multi your pee is more yellow but i'm not taking any and i still have it sooooo.....yeah maybe normal preg thing.

I've read on another forum that it may be the start of the mucous plug. I do take a multi-vitamin and also drink plenty of water but it's never been like that when I wiped before. We'll see I guess!

i have had this constantly, as i don't drink enough water,but i think if your taking anything with iron in them it makes it bright yellow,can't remember if it was my iron/folate ones or the multivatamins. when i take them no mater how much water i drink, still bright

It could be infection... like thrush, i had the same thing at 38wks and needed cream.. check with your doctor. Plug although yellow is more like jelly,

Mine has been yellow most of this preg, and yet my wee is always perfectly clear except the first one of the day.
I put it down to being preg since I don't have any infection.

sounds like you where possibly deyhdrated and sometimes the multivitamins can colour your pee yellow.

Indigo - It wasn't an infection, as I've had thrush once before during this pregnancy and don't have any of the symptoms this time. I haven't seen it since, so I'm putting it down to the multi-vitamin and maybe not enough water, as I had just taken it not too long before it happened. Thanks for all the help ladies.
