Yes, I'm still poas. My question is- why is the control line getting lighter? At 19dpo, both lines are about equal. The 22dpo control line is way lighter than 19dpo control line. I know I shouldn't analyze these tests so much, but I'm curious.

the dye is being taken away for the test line. Great looking tests!

I hope you get an answer because I am peeing on a stick every day too (we are addicts, lol)!!!.

My lines look pretty equal but I am using a different brand.

As mommyandwife08 said, the stronger the reaction at the test line, the more dye it sucks up. That leaves less dye for the control line, which make it appear lighter. The last stick I peed on, the control line was a total squinter! It's a good thing, means you've got lots of hCG to react with the test line!

Just an FYI, as your hcg gets higher, pregnancy tests stop working well. The test line wil start becoming lighter due to something called the "hook" effect. Save yourself some worry and stop testing!
