Can amniotic fluid be yellow?

Think can be described as "straw coloured". In my book that means yellowish (pale).

But then so is pee....

Apparently it has a sweet smell.

Yes, it's normally described as 'straw coloured', can be deeper yellow/orange or even brown in some cases.

Can have a greenish tinge if meconium in waters. I think.
