Thanks for your query
Usually carotinodermia should not have any harmful effect on the pregnancy.You need to avoid foods like carrots,beetroots,oranges,squash XXXXXXX leafy veggies,etc.But you need to see your OB so that some basic tests like liver function tests can be done to determine whether liver is ok.

You can consult a dietician to chart a meal plan for you if you are confused about what to eat.
Antenatal visits are a must.
