Posted: Sat Mar 23, 2013 9:26 pm
To be completely honest hun what will be will be and as you know every pregnancy is different. With kayne my fr was nearly as dark as the control on cd29, with my 2 mc my tests took a couple more days to get as dark as the control and with this pg my test on cd28 I think it was , was darker than the control. Are the tests getting lighter or staying the same? I always find my tests are darker from the second wee of the day not the first. Xxx

Both the day 14's look darker than the day 13's to me
It will be hard to see a difference from one day to the next , really waiting 2 days is better , plus even the manufacturers say don't compare strengths the tests are just a yes or no answer they don't tell you levels , if the digi came up pregnant then you must have more HCG than those dye tests would indicate but maybe its more of the early HCG that not all tests detect xx

Thanks girls! No real symptoms. Slightly sore boobs and very hot but thats it.
this is yesterdays test at 15dpo!
The lines for the past 5 days have all been the same. I had a really dark tesco test last night but this morning it is really faint again!!
How long do chemicals last. I am 16dpo today! I have had 2 chemicals in the past but never got a digi poss! I just cant bear for this to drag on!! Xx

If you've had a dark evening test I wouldn't worry about weak morning ones Not everyone gets their strongest positives in the morning ,just because its your strongest urine sample it doesn't mean it will have the highest concentration of HCG
Its all to do with how your liver processes the HCG out of your blood ,which it can do in spurts and sometimes you can have weak positive tests and a high level on your bloods .
If it was a chemical I doubt you'd have had a strong one in with the weak ones ,If you could I'd get your GP to do bloods even if it means telling a little white lie like saying you don't know how far you could be xx

Have you tried testing again in the afternoon when you got your strongest ,maybe its just the morning tests that are faint
When I think I had a chemical I only got one faint line at 10 DPO (the first time I'd tested) ,had a negative the next day and started spotting at 16/17DPO and then had pains and bled at 18 DPO so for me it was about a week from the neg test to bleeding , if it is a chemical I hope it doesn't drag out for you xx
