So several mamas have written that they had dark lines on their pregnancy tests.

Does it just mean that the line was dark?

And what are the mamas who keep on testing looking for?

I'm just clueless and curious.

A dark line just means that, it wasn't "faint." Doesn't make them any more pregnant, LOL! Mine was pretty dark. I never tested after my posative, see no reason to...but alot of moms think it's really fun! "POAS" addicts they call themselves!

Many times when people first test the + line is a lot lighter than the control line. That's when you hear "faint line". Usually if you wait a few more day you'll notice that faint line will get darker.
