Are you sure you ovulated when you did? If you ovulated a couple of days later, then this would be pretty much as expected.
I’d definitely go to a doctor and get bloods drawn 48-72 hours apart. If the levels are doubling well, then that would be a very good sign! Blood tests are way more accurate than urine tests. I will say that my 17dpo tests were much darker, but there are so many factors that influence how dark urine tests are (how much you drink, your own personal physiology etc). Urine tests aren’t meant to show progression or “how” pregnant someone is, whereas blood tests do.

yeah I haven’t really been tracking much anymore. I just use the FF app, and got a +ve opk on the 30th, and “ovulated” on the 31st. My CD1 was supposed to be yesterday since I’m pretty consistent with a 14 day luteal phase. I will phone my dr tomorrow! Lol my husband was like go to the doctors in like a couple of months, were both not fully convinced this is actually happening.

That is definitely a positive!
Unless you were charting & temping, it is possible that you ovulated a day later than normal or implanted on the later side of things! Once fertilized, it can take up to twelve days for implantation and then 2-3 days before you even see a whisp of a line on a test!
I would call your doctor and see if they would be open to you getting your HCG levels drawn every 2-3 days so that you can see where you are at!
