I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! I've heard that symptoms often don't start until about 6 weeks (so you still have time!). Also, light/dark lines aren't always a good indicator of hcg levels. Sometimes even the exact same brand of test or even tests from the same package are more/less sensitive and sometimes your urine can be more or less diluted. It's definitely not an exact science. Keep hope! I can't wait to hear some great news!

My 2nd beta was 326 yesterday and 146 on Sat so they doubled but the place where I had my IVF said that they would have wanted to see the 146 last Tuesday when they did my first beta that came back NEG. They Dr. office thinks I could have slow growing embryo's. I just want this little bean or beans to hang on. We have been TTC now for 2 1/2 years and I have never been pregnant until now. We have also had 2 failed IVF cycles.
I am tested tonight and I do drink a lot of water during the day so that could be why the line is lighter.
are you using the same kinds of tests? I could go POAS with a FRER, and a Dollar tree right now, and they FRER would be MUCH darker. I could never get a truly dark one on an IC, or Dollar tree test. So, I wouldnt stress too much. Too much fluids can mess the test up also.
Hope your levels look good!!

Think positive. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers. I agree if you are testing at night the lines could be lighter, or if you are using different tests. I hope everything is ok with your bean. Keep us posted.
Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my AWESOME siggy!
Just wanted to share a little story. When I was still poas'ing, I caught the urine in a cup. I wanted to see if two FRER's would yield the same color line from the same sample of urine. I used two tests from the same package. One was considerably lighter than the other. So there's A LOT of variation amongst tests, even when using the same sample. I've stopped testing because comparing lines was driving me nuts. Anyway, I hope your Beta is awesome today!
