I am or should be (not for sure since I had my miscarriage June 6th) 3 weeks 6days. But my question is that my test seem to not be getting any darker??? I took another test today and it looks about the same as it was a couple days ago ???? Should I be worried.... I am just scared and worried that my period is going to show up now.... Last night I had a tiny bit of red/pink blood but only once and this past week I have had just a tiny bit of brown cm??? Any advice ladies?

Hugs Hugs Hugs Mary.....Can you go in for a Beta? Did they test your #'s to 0 after your loss?

It could be that you just o'd later too and that spotting could have been impantation bleeding.

No they never tested me to 0 after my loss......I really just want to know if I am or not. If not fine but this is killing me..... If I am not I think I have talked Dh into another baby I am just hoping that ovulated later. I remember with my D&E my first period was not until 33 days ? So right now I am 28 days ..So I just this is jut going to be a big waiting game ..

BY looking at the test I think It is a " slight " darker but not much /

I would call the Dr and see if they could call into the lab or get you in first thing Monday to get beta's drawn. Since you just had a loss.. it could be left over HCG in your system. Or a new pregnancy... The only way to tell at this point would be to see your numbers double. KUP.... HUGS

It's definitely hard at this point to say what you are seeing. With my second miscarriage, I tested "positive" for almost a month after my D&C. I continued to take pregnancy tests so I could see when they were negative. Once they were negative, then I counted that as the start of my cycle.

I agree with the other ladies...maybe you can get your numbers checked if you are worried? Otherwise, I bet a few days will tell...they will either start to get noticeably darker or not at all. I do caution you, sometimes ladies will mistakenly believe they have had a 2nd miscarriage when the tests get lighter...but really the tests were still showing positive from their first loss. So, be cautious with your heart. Don't automatically assume it's another loss if you know what I mean.

Mine took quite a while to get nice and dark this time. I got a very faint bfp at 12 dpo and then it didn't get noticably darker until about 3 days later. I was making myself crazy over the darkness too and had to only allow myself to test every other day and to make sure I didn't drink a ton of fluid before testing and held my pee. Each test has a slightly different amount of dye in it, this and your fluid intake can effect the darkness early on. Try waiting a couple days and then see if it looks darker.

I recomend a digital.

Unless you bought a bunch of Internet cheaps from the same lot the differnt tests and the ligtness darkness have nothing to do with anything.

I agree. Your loss was only a few weeks ago so it's very likely that your numbers have not dropped back to 0.
