So for some reason I took another pregnancy test this morning and IMO the line was a good bit more faint than all the other ones. Does this mean I am about to lose the baby? I have had no cramping or bleeding of anything. I think I'm just reading too much into it.

Once you get to a certain point in your pregnancy there is a thing called the Hook Effect. Where you have so much hcg in your system that the pregnancy test actually becomes lighter. BUT if you dilute your urine down with water your test actually gets darker.
You can google it to get more info =)

I have read about it. And I agree, try diluting your urine to see if it makes it darker.

Thanks girls! I went back to look at it and it actually doesn't look that much different than the others now. I think I just freaked for no reason, thanks
