Been getting positives for the last 4 days and I'm worrying because they're not getting any darker.

Oh my goodness, why are you testing so much?

Why are you testing so much so early?

Ladies. I can think of a hundred reasons why @ty1996 is testing regularly and early, but I agree it might not be helping if it is causing stress. Ty1996, for now you are pregnant, congratulations! Test again in a few days time, perhaps at 14 dpo, and the line might get darker. For some ladies they don't get a strong dark line until a few weeks after the were due to start AF, so you have plenty of time. Try to relax for now smile.

@Littlepoppet1 @peachypetite testing because the first one I got w faint line, second time I got no line at all, so then been testing to check I have actually for the line and it hasn't disappeared, also been ttc for w long time for this baby so obviously concerned and wanted to make sure, also had problems with previous pregnancies too

Hi I’ve tested tonnes , after miscarriages - anxiety makes you seek the reassurance of darkening lines - so I don’t think anyone should be surprised at anyone doing this .. or judgemental . My lines did darken but for three days stayed exactly the same and that made me more anxious tbh though ( I think recent frers aren’t as sensitive) I’m now relying on beta blood tests , which are doubling ok for now . Op it could go either way and I suggest getting your bloods taken two days a part which will tell you the situation more quickly and accurately. XX

Oh god I must have done 20 tests with my first. I wouldnt worry but perhaps try a digital test to put your mind at ease, then test again when you've missed your AF to check progression.
