Is testing daily to ensure the lines get darker?

With my chem-loss my tests never got darker, so this is my personal way to reassure myself things are going smoothly. I keep asking my mom or Dh if they actually see it getting darker because I don't want to see that just because that is what I am hoping to see... I am confident now that I have 6 days of tests that they are certainly getting darker.

Sorry about your loss!

I totally did this time around because the line was faint(er) this time around at 11DPO than it was with my daughter at 10DPO.

Me, me me!!!

And mine are getting darker, just slowly. They were so light to start with though, lol. I will keep testing at least once or twice a day for the next 3-5 days.

I hatefully admit that I am. I plan to stop after tomorrow though, since I will officially miss my period and will get my beta results on Friday (which are presumably more accurate than a pee stick).

And I am testing for the same reason you are. It's pretty common among those who have had losses And even those who haven't but read about them on here and such!

I am i had not done it before but last time i had taken one at 11 dpo and it was super light so i took one at 14 dpo and it was light but visable then i took one at 5 weeks and it wasn't any darker and i lost the baby of course

but i am testing every other day i tested thursday and got my original then i tested again on the 9th cause i was curious then yesterday and i will test again tomorrow . . . i figure numbers are supposed to double every two days for a while so 2 days it should get darker . . . . so far it has it is darker then it was so i'm pretty excited . . . i keep posting them at the top of the page

Dh and I decided that I should test twice a week. The same thing happened to me last month. I got a positive, missed my period, took another and the line was nice and dark, took another 3 days later and the line was almost gone. It was a few days after that, that I MC'd. So we just want to see that line getting darker and staying that way also

Glad to hear I'm not alone! I'm 15 DPO today and FF predicted AF this Friday because my cycles are whack. I am out of internet cheapies, I have one Answer left so I'll take that tomorrow and then just cross my fingers!

I was pretty crazy. Had a chemical where the lines never got dark and then a MC the cycle after that so this time I took, no joke like 40 something tests. Just look at the pee stick thread to see my craziness. I stopped testing though when the tests were sickenengly dark......hope thats a good sign!!!

These are from this pregnancy. The first one is faint and taken at 10DPO, the last one is from today.




These are the two I took from my chem-loss, they are 2 days apart and the bottom one is 2 days before I lost that pregnancy.

guilty...mostly because I'm breastfeeding and worried about any connection between breastfeeding and loss. (I know studies say there is no connection, but I'm worried none the less.)

Nice! I did take several tests too, not every day because I ran out at one point and couldn't afford to buy more for a little while. Then I did buy more and just saved them for freak-out days. I have 4 nice solid dark lines...the last one I took, the test line was much darker than the control line. So I felt good about it and haven't taken any more as of yet. Plus I have pregnancy symptoms to reassure me and an u/s coming up next week.

I still have a few tests left and catch myself using one every few days. Having to wait so long for my first u/s to make sure baby's okay is really hard
