I’m hoping someone may be able to offer advice/share their story.
I found out I was pregnant (at 4 weeks) last week and confirmed with a CBD test showing pregnant 1-2 weeks. I had a spare digi test left and took another this morning (5 weeks) with FMU. It came back 1-2 weeks still. It worried me a little as I thought it would say 3-4 weeks by now.
I then decided drink very little and waited until SMU and test with an internet cheapie. The line was so faint/barely visible. Could this be a bad sign?
I am not having any cramping, I have had some very very light brown spotting last week but that’s it.
This is our first BFP and trying for #1 for 18 months x
Try not to get obsessive about pregnancy tests as the darkness of lines aren't always an indication of hcg levels but rather an indication of the presence of hcg. I would test again in a couple of days to see if a line is still there.
I worried myself sick in the first weeks because it was so early but unfortunately at this stage, there's no other way to tell as early scans are still too early.
I did the same as you. I stupidly tested at 6 weeks and was devastated to find that the line was weaker and was convinced it didn't bode well. One tip I got was to dilute the urine with water as it sometimes is too strong which can mess up the line (no idea how, I don't get it) but I diluted and it was stronger. After that, I binned the rest of the tests!
