So since my first three positive tests were only "kinda" dark, I thought I would do another today just to make myself feel better. I went to Walgreens, which is crazy expensive, so I skimped and bought the Walgreens brand blue dye +/- test. Peed on it (like fourth pee of the day, because let's face it, I have to pee a lot), and the plus sign was super faint. Like...depressingly faint. Is this a bad sign? Am I becoming less pregnant? I keep telling myself its because blue dye tests are junk and I shouldn't be bothered by it, but I'm freaking out!!
I would go to the doctor and get your beta hcg and progesterone drawn. At 5 weeks and 4 days a pregnancy test should be very dark - that being said there are always rare cases where you will be very pregnant and not get a positive. My friend was one of them. She took a millions tests and they were all negative - and she was definitely pregnant! I'm sorry you are going thru this. I went thru this twice and unfortunately for me it did not end well, but for some women it does. If you don't want to get a blood test then I suggest an frer. Take two tests 2-3 days apart and if there is no difference then I would go see the doctor.

Pretty sure I'm just nuts. Or my urine was really diluted. Didn't drink anything and held it for a couple hours, and tested again. Nice bright plus sign. Seriously, sign me up for a straight jacket. This is going to be a long 35 weeks.
K I'm done now. Feel free to ignore my ranting lol
