How quickly did your tests get darker?

I tested yesterday afternoon & got a faint bfp & the same thismorning. No darker. With my last pregnancy it got noticeable darker each day even before my period was due. I think my period is due in 4-6 days.

How quickly did your tests get darker prior to your period being due? I'm wondering if I should expect a chemical pregnancy.

And I know the sensible answer is wait a few days & test again Tounge1.gif

A line is a line. Your urine from yesterday could have been more concentrated. Dont look at the darkness as a sign for being "more" pregnant. Go and get some bloods and stop POAS  tongue.gif

The first 5 I did didn't really get any darker (I POAS each day for a couple of weeks) that was with the FRER. I don't think it's indicative of anything though.

It's still no darker today sad.gif just the same as it was 2 days ago. I did take my temp yesterday & today & it's high (in line with my last pregnancy) but I'm thinking it's going to end badly. Period due in 2 days & the line is still barely visable & hasn't increased.

Please don't worry too much based on tests right now, honestly I did so many and I worried so much. yes they got darker but it was n't a massive difference on a day to day basis and some days they looked the same as the day before.

Yep this was the same for my CP.

Whereas viable pregnancies got gradually darker, though it took a few days to really start getting much darker (i.e. past when my period was due).

No it's not getting fainter but it's so so faint to start! I've tested on first response & confirm & both have lines that are barely visible & have stayed that was for 3 days now. With my son the lines got darker every day & were very dark by the time my period was due. These lines are so faint you can barely see them. They are there & not getting lighter (any lighter & they'd be gone lol) but given I'm so close to my period I had expected them to be clear by now. I also don't have sore boobs or anything like I did with my son.

Mine were the same for about 4 days. I stressed a bit too, but it was fine.  At such an early stage they won't get darker for a while.

If your period is due in 2 days and you have anything then I think thats good!

At best you would be 3-4 weeks pregnant so a faint line is a faint line.

I dont think you can rely on that to determine a CP. If the line is very very faint I would go to get a blood test when AF is due. if the doctor does a POAS test it might come out negative as I found the doctor's tests to me much less sensitive.

Just an update for anyone who comes accross this topic. My guy feeling was right & it did in fact turn out to be a chemical pregnancy just before 5 weeks sad.gif

TillyTake2 sorry it did not work out sad.gif Unfortunately I'm in a similar situation at the moment - faint positives on a FRER 11dpo, 12dpo and 13dpo (today) but not getting any darker at all. Going for bloods tomorrow to see what happens.
