Test line getting lighter

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm really anxious that I am having a chemical pregnancy. I am a serial tester and my tests seem to be getting lighter. Should I expect the worse?

Can you post them? how many days have they been gettinb lighter? Sometimes it's just diluted pee or bad tests.

Thank you for responding! I took another test at 3am and it was a bit darker than yesterday afternoon. I tested first on Sat morning (10 DPO and got a BFN). Sunday morning I got 3 faint positives on 3 different brands - a cheapie, a Target blue dye test and a FR. Later than afternoon I took another Target test and it was darker.... Yesterday I took a FR and it was darker than the day before but then yesterday a FR test and then a new packet of Target tests were much lighter, though still positive. My Target test this morning was a bit darker than that... Gah. Not sure if it's worth posting pics as they all seem to look alike now!

 

My Dr wants me to wait until 6 weeks past my period to get a blood test and a dating/viability scan. I hope I don't go crazy in the mean time.

If they all look pretty close to the same dried I wouldn't worry. Some tests have different reaction times so they'll be lighter or darker than others at the 10 min time limit. I think you're ok. :)
