I'm 11dp5dt (fresh) and I'm obsessing over the colour of my line. I think I should be happy it's positive but these are just internet cheapie and I'm not sure the line is dark enough which is making me worry it's a chemical. What do you think?

There's definitely stronger lines and colour darkening from top to bottom! Get yourself a FRER and you'll feel loads better! And congratulations 😀

I wish I had picked one up yesterday but I'll get one tomorrow. I've a clear blue digital but I am worried it won't be sensitive enough. The first day I got a line it was a proper squinter so I keep thinking I'm seeing things.

Mine was a very faint line on day 14 of ET, test was provided by the hospital, I sent DH out to buy more to confirm! Good luck x

Definitely get frer or a clear blue digital weeks, I’ve found it reassuring to see the weeks increase over time as sometimes the lines can be deceiving! X

Thanks. I took another one this afternoon and it was the darkest yet. I tried to do a clear blue digital but managed to mess it up in my panic and stress so it didn't give any reading. I'm going to try and hold off doing any more till Tuesday (as if I'm going to manage that!).

Well I took a clear blue digital this morning and it came up as pregnant 1-2 weeks but going by first period and transfer date I should be 4 weeks and 4 days which could put the clear blue out slightly. This whole process is driving me mad!

Those Clearblue date tests count from conception (since there is, if you think about it, no such thing as '1 week pregnant' counting in the normal way).. So 1-2 weeks on the test is 3-4 weeks pregnant.

Yeah and 3+ takes a while too. Congratulations OP 😁

Thanks, I know last time I had a darker line at this stage but I also miscarried not long after so my head is telling me to stop panicking as it's all put of my control anyway and there's no way of knowing what's going on.
Thanks for all your words of advice. X

If you really want more information, the only way to get it would be blood tests at a 48 hour interval to see how quickly your HCG is rising. Whether a GP would do them without any specific indication they were needed is a bit of a question mark, but you might find somewhere that would do it privately. But like you said, you can't actually do anything to control things even with that information, so I guess it's up to you whether you feel you really need that extra detail. Good luck and take care!
