Some women have more hcg in their urine in the afternoons than in the mornings. The test may not have had as much dye in it as well which would register a fainter positive.

I got a super super faint positive 2 days before my missed period..took a test on the day my period was suppose to show and it was negative(FMU)..thought I was having another chemical pregnancy and cried all weekend..still didn't have any signs of my period so I took a test again and it came back super faint again..took one pretty much every day for almost a week and they were ALL way faint..like yours is..and then exactly a week after my missed period my test came back dark so I was like "I'm gonna have another baby!"..



I even went to the doctor the day before my missed period to get blood taken but before I did that they ran a urine test and said it was negative but my HCG levels came back at 11 and I went back 3-4 days later and they had gone up to I believe 130 or something around there..turns out I had ovulated a week late(which is why NFP failed for us) and thats why my test kept coming back so faint..Good Luck!

Well as you know my 2nd miscarriage was similar. The lines just kept getting lighter & lighter. HOWEVER.... I was using FRER the entire time, never used cheapies.



With Mallory, I took well over 20 tests total because I was so so so afraid of that happening again. & my FMU tests were sooooooooooooo light. My HCG was much higher at night (I'm assuming) as my tests would appear darker. Not to mention, you're only 4 weeks so TO ME personally your tests look just as they are... early.



When are you going to test again? Def. get some FRER's and also try testing later in the evening after you've held it for awhile.

I'm 20-23 dpo and still getting barely there positives you have to edit. I see the midwife on the 28th but I've been so scared because last time I had a chemical.

Oh that is so weird and must be nerve wrecking. Can we see a pic?
When I had fainting tests, I unfortunately did not have a good outcome. They started fainting and I stopped testing for 3 days. When I tested again it was totally negative :-( . However, the fact that you were still nauseaus and that the test ist darker now is most likely a sign that everything is ok with your pregnancy! My symptoms totally went away about 2-3 days before negative test. Sticky Baby Dust!!!!

I had that happen. When I was preggo with my son. Get a clear blue digital pregnacy test it says the words pregnant not pregnant. Thats how I knew I was pregnant with my son and with this lil one as well.
