It’s fine, trust me. Put the tests down. Your lines are great.

I wouldn’t worry – usually it’s best to take pregnancy tests in the morning since the pregnancy hormone is more concentrated in your early urine.

It could be a number of factors:

Your urine is more diluted in the evenings, you’ve been drinking all day!

The amount of dye in the second test isn’t the exact same as the first. 

The test paper could be a different shade, thus making the test line a different shade. 

Relax! You’re pregnant! Deep breaths. The tests look nearly identical. And it takes 48-72 hours in the beginning for the hormone to double, so really, you shouldn’t be testing every 12 hours. You’ll drive yourself insane. Unless you know at exactly what hour the doubling will happen, which you don’t and you won’t. So relax. Relax. Relax. Test in 2 days and THEN compare.

Line progression obsession is a dangerous thing (I say from experience!) Your lines are great – taking tests on the same day is the worst idea as your evening urine isn’t going to be as concentrated as your morning urine so you’re not comparing like for like. As a PP said, leave it a couple of days before testing again.

But I wouldn’t worry with lines like that!
