Found out on the day my period was due that I am pregnant that was 5 days ago. I did a test two days ago and one this morning and my line seems fainter what do you think?
Shall I hope for the best expect the worst? What happens next sad
Left test 2 days ago right one is now.

It doesn't look fainter to me, how are you feeling in yourself?

If you're not well or having cramps/bleeding you should maybe go to your local EPAU.

Hope everything's ok. xx

Maybe try a different brand of test like FRER as they are really sensitive.

Good luck.

they look the same to me and they look like cheap tests. if theyre like the ones off the internet they take forever to get dark and nevee get the same colour as the test line.

i think you are pregnant. i know its a worrying time but for the moment i would try and relax and stay away from the tests.

Why, after getting a positive, are you doing multiple tests? Either you're pregnant or you're not? The test came up as pregnant therefore you are with child.

They are asda cheepies. I feel ok I ache all over but no cramping or bleeding or anything. I should only be about 4 weeks 5 days so really early. I said I wouldn't test loads this time but obviously that's not worked out!

Try not to worry. There are a number of reasons why it may be lighter e.g. wee was more diluted the second time, the test is cheap etc etc. The good news is they are both positive smile congrats. Stop testing and celebrate

I'm a crazy tester (even at 5 weeks) and I really wouldn't worry about the line strength unless it disappears. Line strength depends on so much stuff that it really isn't worth thinking about!

I only ever used the ones which gave me words "pregnant" or "not pregnant". There is no such thing as "faintly pregnant". If you got the line you are pregnant. Congratulations! Now stop testing.

Don't look any different to me.

On the whole the darkness of the line is irrelevant - pregnancy tests have varying amount of due (even between the same brands) and your urine is totally different levels of dilution every time you wee.

Thanks ladies it's rediculous I know, Im seriously mad at my self for getting pas obsessive again! I'll stop now!

It doesn't look lighter to me. If you need to be at ease go get a FRER and do it tomorrow morning but then NO MORE TESTS! flowers

Hi just letting you know i have actually been goin crazy with poas! I thiught i was having a chemical pregnancy as todays cheap test from poundland actually showed up pretty much negative but after nipping to a different shop i got a clearblue and a homebargains cheapy and attached are todays results - top 1 is poundlan with fmu - bottom 2 are 2mu or even 3mu after a couple of brews. These are the strongest i have had yet and i think i had a faulty batch from poundland
