Hi ladies,

I got a BFP on Sunday but am very hesitant and nervous as I have had a chemical and an early miscarriage in the past.

Sunday nights test was clear but light and yesterday afternoons a little darker but this mornings test doesn't seem to be any darker than yesterdays?

Here is a pic so let me know what you think:

Has anyone had success with results that look like this?

I'm doing IVF and my beta HCG blood test is schedule for Friday so I'll know more then but that seems like ages away.

Oh you remind me of me with obsessive testing!

They look fine for your DPO.

And honestly, I found morning urine never that great, I always had better results in the afternoons.

But those tests look very similar to mine at the same stage.

Best of look with your blood results, I hope its good news original.gif

Hi, the tests all look good to me, I'm no expert but from memory HCG levels double every 48hrs.  Your test show really good lines to me, mine were so faint that my doctor didn't believe me.  I now have a 2.5year old.

That probably really wasn't much help sorry

Good Luck with it all

My tests never got darker. If anything they got lighter! I still have a gorgeous healthy 1 year old.

Stop testing. See your dr.

Congrats OP!

They look great to me OP!  Mine never got any darker than that with either my twin or singleton pregnancies.  Congrats! Fingers crossed for you that all goes well.

They look pretty good to me. DylJayBen's Mum is right, hcg doubles every 48-72hrs so tests not getting darker overnight is normal. Get your levels check by a doc if you'd like a better idea of how fast they are doubling.

Hi all, thanks for the replies. Had my bloods done yesterday, a day early at 15dpo. HCG was 65. It's a little lower than I was hoping for but fingers crossed the levels rise nicely next week.
