A pregnancy test does not determine how much HCG is in your urine. I am 7 weeks mine are the same faint line they were at 3.5 weeks. The dr said it's fine.

Is it because the brand pregnancy test cannot pick it up? Or is because the hcg levels are low? My first two when I was 3 weeks I had a dark positive instantly.. That's why I'm so confused this time

My first pregnancy was too. This one they are just light. I don't know what causes it. But it's not concern for anything.

I have taken like 5 or 6 tests this pregnancy and all of them were very light. I am 23 weeks now and definitely pregnant! :) I hope everything goes well with your doctor's appointment. Good luck and congrats!



The pains sound like round ligament pains to me, btw.

Hahahha my husband says he read that if you are producing lower HCG , so the lines faint, then you are more likely to have a boy.



I don't know how true that is.



I'm also producing a faint line. I hope all goes well for you.

Mine were so faint, you could barely see the second line. The tests just detect the hormone in your urine, not how much there is.

That's really interesting. With DD the test I took was immediately darker than the control line. With this pregnancy I got the faint +s and it's a boy! Maybe it's true? :)

Wow I don't want to get my hopes up! But I also did the baking soda test, salt test and mathematical dates test and Chinese lunar test all say boy although their just for fun they don't seem very fun I'm going to be left waiting for ages before I find out!
