Possible miscarriage?

Just found out a few days ago that I'm pregnant with no2. Had a strong line on an internet cheapie and then did a digital that confirmed Pregnant 1-2 weeks. I did a test this evening again just out of curiosity (and because I had bought in bulk) and the line is very much fainter now! Could this mean that I've possibly had an early miscarriage or could it be simply that I've done the test in the evening? Period was only due yesterday so I realise I'm still early for a positive but I'm so concerned that it seems to be becoming more faint confused

Hey OP was it the same brand of test?

IC's are notorious for having different amounts of Dye in tests causing different line colours.

I really wouldn't read too much into it and if you have any physical symptoms of misscarriage please can your EPU flowers

Same thing happened to me. I'm now 8 weeks. Put the tests down, it'll only drive you mad!

Ah I really hope you're right! So worried now!

Was the same brand tests, yesterday's was much darker than the day before and then this evenings is sooo faint!

What time did you do first (darker) test?

I did both roughly around the same time. I did a digital yesterday and it still said Pregnant 1-2 but I'm just afraid that my levels aren't rising after seeing the result on the cheapies. I suppose there's nothing I can do only wait it out

It could be for all sorts of reasons (e.g. Different amounts of indicator on the tests, different test expiry dates, the way the tests have been stored, the time of day you did it, the amount of water you had drunk etc etc). It really is not sensible to try to 'track' your pregnancy using HPTs ; that way madness lies (especially if you are only a few days in).
You just need to wait this one out.
