Hey Ladies, I'm a bit concerned about my HPT progression. These are the pics for 11-15dpo (yesterday was 15dpo). The tests from 13-15 are all about the same, and I think they should've been getting darker. Today I'm 16dpo, should I take another one with smu?? I would've just taken one this morning but I'm out of tests, so I think I might buy more. I'm so worried!! What do you think?

I think those look great!! Your 15dpo one doesnt seem to be dramatically darker but its also not dramatically lighter either. It could be that you drank more water this time or something simple like that. Also the HGC eventually levels off so theres no more getting darker or lighter. Congrats though looks like some beautiful BFPs!!!!!

P.S I wouldnt buy more tests (theyre expensive!) Enjoy the pregnancy!!!

Thank you yesterday's (15dpo) is a tad lighter than 14dpo. I hope you're right, I have been drinking a lot more water since I found out! This is my first pregnancy , so I have no idea what to expect. I have been over analyzing every little twinge and driving myself nuts lol! I even thought about calling the dr because I've had most of my twinges/pulling on my right side. I think I just need to stop obsessing, and whatever happens happens and leave it at that!
Thank you for your response!!

I've said it before in TTC, but I'll say it again. Pregnancy tests are not designed to tell you how pregnant you are. They are ONLY meant to tell you whether HCG was detected in your urine (two lines) or not (one line). There are many, many reasons why tests may not darken over time as people would like them to do. Batches vary. Urine strength varies. The temperature and age of the sticks vary.

Just try to enjoy. You're pregnant!

Those lines are really dark! Some people never get darker lines. You are obviously pregnant, don't stress over this.

Thanks! I took their advice and did NOT buy more tests... I would just drive myself crazy! I did call my dr yesterday and ask about my cramps, because they were mostly on one side and I was concerned, and she said as long as there's no bleeding and the cramps aren't really bad it's probably normal.
I then did my workout and felt much better! And my cramps have almost gone away since my workout too!
I'm just going to enjoy this time and try not to worry about things that may or may not go wrong.
