Did anyone have a really dark test early on?

At 13DPO yesterday after a 2 hr hold (so moderately concentrated urine for me) I had a test line that was as dark as the control line.

FYI, this is a photo I found on Countdown that looks just like mine did yesterday (my phone takes awful pictures) Pregnancy Test Gallery - Image #158435 | Countdown to Pregnancy

I've read the myths about darker tests and twins and all that stuff and there doesn't seem to be much merit behind it.

Perhaps I ovulated earlier than I thought I did? Any thoughts on this?

My tests have been as dark as the control line since 12 dpo and my beta numbers have been pretty high...but I'm not sure if its twins or not or just one healthy bean =)
I know exactly when I ovulated (I was temping and using opk's)
I got my first positive at 8dpo.

Here is my 13dpo test.

It also depends on when you implanted. That varies by woman. I would think your hormones would get higher, faster if you implant earlier.

I was not as dark as the control line until about 16dpo.

*lurking*

Even with twins my line wasn't as dark as the control line until 14dpo (if you want to see tests: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f7...te-thread.html (My POAS Update thread)).

My line was dark at 11 dpo as dark as control on a FRER but still faint on a cheapie. So I think it just depends on implanation and I have heard hug from a female embryo shows earlier but I don't know if there's truth to that. I got my first BFP at 9 dpo and I am 16 dpo today, the dollar store tests still aren't as dark as control but the frer is.

hCG not hug lol

Good to know that your dollar store tests aren't as dark either...i have been using those and at 5 weeks still don't have a test as dark as the control. Will test again tomorrow.

Fwiw I have a friend who didn't get a bfp till 17dpo with her twins.

I was pregnant with triplets and had no idea because you could barely see my lines. HPT lines are based on HCG levels but it's not an exact science. Neither are HCG levels for that matter. My early HCGs indicated maybe twins . . . maybe . . . but around 7 weeks we saw a third baby.

Science doesn't have it all nailed down, meaning us moms get a real roller coaster.

My tests with #4 were super dark and the test turned positive before I put it down. (I was bfding #3 and found out later I was already 15 weeks!)

This time I had the same thing. Super dark before I could even put it down. I am not sure on dates, it would be nice to be that far along again but I'm only 9 weeks max. I will find out for sure Tuesday. I love babies and love being a Mommy, I'm not sure how I would handle it if there were more than one!Knowing people with twins can still have lighter lines eases my mind a bit. Lol

It makes me feel better to know yours still isn't dark as control on dollar tests too! I was worried that it was getting lighter but my dollar stores are very slowly getting darker, but I thought for sure it would be dark by now.

I had digis that said I was 4-5 weeks pregnant at 13dpo but it took until I think it was 4w6d for my ICs to be as dark as the control line. It may have been a day or so earlier if I had tested but not before that. I'm not sure what they would have been like on any of the good tests because I only bought one FRER and a tweo pack of digis. The rest of my tests were cheapies
