kayelayes :  this is what happened to me when I had my chemical pregnancy. They stayed very light for a few days and then the line went away. But I have a friend who said she had light lines like that for weeks and all was good! Darkness of the line is not a good indicator of HCG. Fingers crossed for you !!

kayelayes :  I’m really sorry you’re dealing with this stress. I agree with pp – ask your doctor for an hCG blood test – that’s the only way to know what’s going on. I will tell you that my lines appeared to be getting fainter for a few days earlier in my pregnancy (15-18dpo), but they did eventually darken up. When I saw they were getting fainter, I asked my doctor for a blood test which revealed that my hcg was on the low side compared to most people at the same gestation. Fortunately, the second hcg test 48 hrs later showed that my levels were increasing appropriately. I really hope that’s all this is for you – that you’re earlier along than you think and your levels just started out lower. I’m thinking about you and crossing my fingers!

kayelayes :  I’m so sorry to hear that. That really sucks, and now I’m worried because my lines are still pretty light at 14 dpo. But yeah, at least it’s comforting to know that we are able to get pregnant.

kayelayes :  I’m so sorry! That silver lining is definitely important though! Take that for comfort and we’ll all join you in hoping this next month is the month that leads to a healthy sticky pregnancy for you. ❤️
