Im like 14 dpo today and I don't know if Im unnessarally (sp) freaking myself out or I have good reason to be concerned. I have been peeing on tests but I guess where I make my mistake on trying to see if there getting darker is they havent been the same kind. and not at the same time. here are some of my test.

8 dpo smu

9dpo smu

10 dpo smu

12dpo smu I think

3mu after a 4 or 5 hour hold

FMU 13dpo and I did a digital too that showed postive in maybe 1 min.


2mu or 3mu not sure cuz I have a hard time holding
well these sent me over the edge so I ran out and bought an answer test I held it as long as I could maybe 3 hours it was pretty pale in color but I had to take one..

13dpo 4mu

I don't think that you have any reason to be concerned. They're all positive! And if they're different types, they're going to register a little differently. Sooo...CONGRATULATIONS!

Looks good to me. Different tests can have different thresholds for hcg, and they can even have different dye amounts within them. Congrats!

Girl they are different tests! No reason to worry! I POAS with two different brands at the same time and even those lines appeared different! The last few especially are clearly positive. CONGRATS!

They are all positive... I know its hard but try not to compare tests of different brands.
Also, I can see that one of them is a walmart .88 cent test. I was getting faint tests positives on those for the longest time. Finally I used FMU, and the line was much darker. Still no where as dark as the control line, but at this point I'm wondering if it will EVER get that dark?

Anyways, congrats!

They don't always get darker. they never got dark when I was pregnant in 05...she's now six :-) anyway...you're comparing different tests, at different times of day, and even if you were going to get a progression, it's not exactly fair to use so many variables. take a deep breath...they're all positive!

If you want to compare lines, you should probably stick to 1 brand of test and test at the same time (FMU or SMU or whatever). Different brands pick up different amounts of the hormone and have different amounts of dye. Your tests all look fantastic but you can't really fairly compare line darkness between them.

I would try another first response if it were me and stick with those to see if it's getting darker. Not everyone has them get darker though.

Or just call for bloodwork

back away from the tests
.....you are causing yourself unecessary stress. The tests look great! I actually started POAS to see if they got darker and felt myself getting a little crazy about it. Consider it positive andd try to sit tight til your first appt. (I know this is easier said than doneRemember, we are all in this together!!!
