Can a dark pregnancy line indicate multiples? Or, am I just farther along than I expected?
Miscarriages: 2 in past year
Cycle from July (last miscarriage) to December-- 27 days
-- In January on 31st day I had light bleeding for 3 days.
-- Home pregnancy tests said negative; even 1 week after missed period. (on 37th day.)
Feb. 08: 27th day no period
31st day, no period and VERY dark pregnancy line indicator on First Response test.
1st pregnancy - VERY light pregnancy line - test taken at missed period - healthy baby!
2nd & 3rd pregnancies - VERY light pregnancy line - tests taken at missed period; both miscarried.
4th pregnancy - DARK pregnancy line - test taken at missed period.
Very healthy, EEG good, thyroid good, bloodwork from physical all good.
Must wait week and a half for first prenatal visit...hoping to find out more info.
I was actually able to tell a lot from my pee sticks during my past 11 pregnancies. I know it's not scientific, etc. etc.
Anyway, I always used First Response. For all my 10 failed pregnancies, the line started out very light, and never did progress that quickly. It would stay pretty light for a week, just getting a little dark (Don't even ask how many pee sticks I have taken in my life). When I had an ectopic, the line stayed SUPER faint - like a shadow - for about a week. My levels were only around 10.
With this preg (I'm almost 28 weeks) the test line was very noticeable, like 4 or 5 days before my period. It progressively got darker. You can see the progression at http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd35/AshleysMom2/peestickpics004.jpg or http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd35/AshleysMom2/peestickpics001.jpg. By 15 dpo the results line was darker than the test line.
The more HCG, the darker the results. HCG is a good thing.
For me, it wasn't the darkness of the initial line, it was how it progressed.
