Hello, the darkness of pregnancy tests isn't always reliable in the early stages. However, combined with your side pain I think you should get it checked out. Could you go to an EPU to try to get a scan to rule out ectopic pregnancy?

Don't keep testing. You will stress yourself out

Princesspinkgirl Mon 06-Jun-16 22:13:32

As others suggested stop testing I would talk with epu flowers

So you're about 5 weeks pregnant. Did you do your tests first thing in the morning when wee is concentrated or later in day after drinking more? This could affect the different line colours.

I think you shouldn't do any more tests until you are over 6 weeks (from your LMP not conception). Then do a test. BUT If you are in pain radiating to right or left then you should see your GP. HCG levels (what these tests measure) can fluctuate in ectopic pregnancy, and even if (hopefully) you are ok, you should take sided pain seriously in early pregnancy. A GP can refer you to an EPAU (early pregnancy assessment unit), but they should do a clinical assessment and pregnancy test of their own first.

ljomrs just to reassure you, if you're used to running, running 10k will have had absolutely NO impact whatsoever.

Hope you get good news - look after yourself

Hope all goes well at your appointment with gp.
Just a thought, obviously you've kept the older tests, were the lines always that dark on the more visible tests, is it possible that because the tests were taken a while ago the original line blurred/evaporated and became darker?
I hope that's the case, all the best. smile

Good luck at the GP...

Have you got a early pregnancy unit at your local hospital? If I was you I'd ring them direct.

My gp seemed to have no clue when I went to him with brown spotting etc, then at my first midwife appointment she advised always calling the EPU as the gp's advice isn't always accurate and early pregnancy is the EPU's speciality.

Try stay positive flowers

Good luck with your appt. Have you phoned the EPU? They are very helpful and can arrange scans etc.

I had a positive pregnancy test that must of been taken when I was about 8 weeks pregs, then another a week later that was so faint that the nurse didnt want to confirm or deny the pregnancy until the scan. It turned out I was pregnant and had a perfectly healthy baby, really not sure why that happened to me, faulty test or whatever, but it did. I am just sharing in the hope it might reassure you, although obviously it might not be for the exact same situation.
