Pungent urine smell

Sorry.. i have been having this pungent urine smell everytime i go to the toilet. So uncomfortable with the smell.. Am currently in my 19 weeks. Is it normal? Anyone experiencing like this before? Will it eventually go away?

Mine was very bad & I thought it was due to my prenatals. Then I tested protein in my urine & turns out I had UTI. No pain or blood in urine. Just pungent smell & urge to pee. I thought it was the baby pressing. Just check with your gynae; it’s common and easy to cure!

Urinary tract infections can definitely happen during pregnancy. Please let your gynae know about it and do the urine test to check, so you can get treated if needed

I had a similar concern (dark yellow urine and a stronger smell) and gynae mentioned that the prenatals we’re taking do cause it too. Just a heads up!

Me too! Gynae says it’s due to the prenatal too tell me not to worry and that during preg sense of smell drastically improves
