Once you hit a point in HCG a "hook effect" starts where the test line becomes light again. It happened to me last pregnany and I freaked out. Everything was fine... If you are bored, google it Kinda interesting!

My doctor told me the same thing tuesday. She told me to quit peeing on sticks because eventually it gets lighter and will cause unneeded stress.

Wow! That is interesting! I had never heard of that before! Thanks for sharing.

P.S. Just for the record, I am done testing with HPTs. I used up my stash and then some, but I'm feeling pretty convinced that I'm actually pregnant now!

Interesting! I'm not a POAS addict but it's good information regardless.
