One of the symptoms of pregnancy is passing cloudy pee. Passing cloudy pee is a common condition among most pregnant women. In addition, most pregnant women also pass out cloudy urine. Cloudy pee in most cases is a temporary condition which shouldn’t cause you so much worry. If you are pregnant and passing out cloudy pee, it could be because of one or more of the following reasons.
Passing out cloudy pee often follows ingestion and digestion of food containing considerable amounts of phosphates. As such, the type and food you are taking could be the source of your condition. If you take such foods as milk (a lot of it), containing large amounts of phosphates, then you are likely to pass out cloudy pee the following day. You can test this by dropping a small amount of vinegar on a sample of your pee to determine if it is phosphates. Such a condition is however temporary and you should recover within a period of less than two days.
Another factor that could be causing you to pass out cloudy pee is the lack of enough fluids in the body, a common condition referred to as dehydration. Dehydration is not restricted to pregnant women only; it can occur to anybody. Dehydration results from failure to drink water causing lack of enough fluids in the body. This will cause you to pass out cloudy urine and pee, and which are often smelly. You can rectify this problem by drinking a lot of water, even more than the recommended eight glasses of water a day.
Passing out cloudy pee while pregnant can also be attributed to nutritional deficiencies. Lack of certain nutrients and vitamins in your diet could result into this condition. You should therefore ensure that you take a balanced diet, so that all the necessary nutrients can be availed to your body and to that of the unborn baby in the womb.
These are some of the common causes for passing out cloudy pee. The condition is a temporary one and shouldn’t raise alarm. However, it persists for two or three days, then its recommendable that you see a doctor.
