So yesterday I got my BFP at 10DPO. Today I tested again on FRER and it is so light I can really barely see it. I have to hold it up to a light to see it. The control line was lighter than yesterdays. I took a digi yesterday and today and both said yes that I am pregnant. Would you be worried that the line is practically nonexistent today. Both days I tested with FMU. My temp went up, no cramping or spotting. I keep telling myself that I'm only 11DPO and that the digi says yes so I shouldn't be worried. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen and if I should worry. My doctor won't see me earlier than July 27th.

I dont think id be worried at this point. You are only 11dpo and at 10dpo the line would probably be pretty light.

Different tests have different sensitivities. 11dpo is still very early, some people don't even get a bfp that early. The fact that you got a + on a digi is very good though. My tests didn't get really positive until 14dpo, and I definitely worried that 9,10,11,12 weren't getting any darker, but things are fine for me!

Casey, I agree with the other girls. I am thinking it's so early that the test sensitivities are probably different. I will be thinking about you and your lil bean!

Just keep testing, Casey. Individual tests will vary, but as long as you're getting some kind of positive, and that by next week they are darker, you should be fine.

I agree with the others...
I didn't get a + until 11DPO - at all!! And they line was insanely faint, so much so that I questioned if it was really there...and when I got my numbers drawn - my numbers were 41!!
So, remember, the HCG numbers are very low at this point...so, if you HCG was lets say 20 (and you happened to have a test with a bit more dye), then on Wednesday, it will be 40...but, a test with a bit less dye might not even show 30 HCG...I know that I took a test at 10DPO and there was no line whatsoever...

Hope that made sense...I know what a stressful time it is, believe me...but as long as that digi is still saying good things, and there is no spotting, its all good...

The line is usually pretty light at 11dpo. I wouldn't worry!

DONT worry Casey! There are so many variables...different tests have different sensitivity levels (yes even ones of the same brand) and your ONLY 11dpo tests are normally pretty light at 11dpo!!! Try and relax, but I know how hard that is!!

I wouldn't worry. Like the other ladies said, it's super early and tests can have different sensitivities. Also, the fact that you said the control line is lighter suggests there was less dye in this test, probably causing a lighter test line.

I know it's easier said than done but try not to stress yourself out by taking your temps or HPTs. I stopped both after the day I found out because I knew I would be addicted to POAS or over-analyzing my temps. If your digi's are saying you're preggo, you're preggo!! do you have a dr. appt lined up yet?

Casey, I am so sorry you are worried. But, I agree, it is still very early. Some girls don't get their BFP until 12 or 13DPO. So, don't stress yourself out. You did get to PREGNANT digi tests in a row...so that is awesome!! I would put down the pee sticks and CELEBRATE!!! haha
GL!

Thanks girls! I feel so much better. I did take another test today and even though the line was light it was definately there. I am taking my last one at 15 DPO just because I don't want to waste it and it feels so good seeing that 2nd line pop up after so many negatives! I have been temping which has actually made me feel better because my temps just keep going up, actually a lot more than I expected! Our first appt. is July 27th! I'm super excited and pray we here a hb! Thanks everyone for talking me down from my worrying! I work the next two nights in a row and will then be on more.

I'm glad you're feeling better about it! Try not to stress, though I know that's hard. I was a late tester, waited until CD-37 and had a very dark line when I tested, however, I still obsessed about it for several weeks.

Good luck!

Once you get your BFP, it's best not to test or temp! It will only worry you. I'm glad you're feeling better about it all.
