Hubs and I got our first positive pregnancy test on Friday, 12DPO. The two tests were very faint (First Response), but definitely there. Saturday morning I tested again, still faint. Sunday morning I tested a 4th time with the FR and with a Clear Blue digital. Digital read pregnant and FR was definitely darker. This morning I tested with a FR and the line looked lighter again.
Should I be worried that the line was lighter a day later? Or am I just freaking myself out??

It could really go either way this early. Today’s test might be lighter because your urine is more diluted or there’s a different amount of dye in that test… or it could be an early miscarriage. The only way to know for sure is to either have a series of beta tests at your doctor’s office or to just wait it out. <br /><br />
I’m wishing you lots of good luck – hopefully you just drank a lot of water and that’s what’s causing the lighter line!

Honestly, you are probably just causing yourself undue stress by taking so many hpts! I thought I POAS a few days after taking the first two (a frer and a clearblue digi… I had more of the digis). Then I was just SUPER anxious after it said “pregnant” while I waited to see if it would say I was further along than I had been 2 days before (it still said 1-2 weeks, btw). I haven’t taken another because it is just too nervewracking.
A pregnancy test is just that: a pregnancy test. It’s either positive or it’s negative. You already know you are pregnant, so enjoy it and try not to stress until you see a doctor. 🙂

After my experience with POAS I wouldn’t trust them at all. Mine kept saying I wasn’t pregnant even AFTER I had a blood test confirming it at the Dr. I suggest making a Dr appointment before getting too upset.
