My positive line is darker than the control line on the hpt - anyone else had this?
I'm to thinking twins just wanting one bubba, but interested to know I'm about five weeks and my hcg is about 800.

I've heard it's because there is only a certain amount of dye in the tests, so if the HCG is strong enough it claims all the dye.. although i've never had it happen myself.
Either way, Congratulations!!

Hehe, I had this at 5 weeks and I now have 2 year old twins!! Good luck and I really hope you get twins. One would be amazing too but if you are having twins, don't be nervous, it's bloody hard but they are so so beautiful!!
Oh, and my HCG was 900 and something.

My test line was heaps darker than the control too at about 16DPO. My hcg levels were 9844 at 5 weeks and I'm pregnant with only 1 baby

Mine was like that too. One baby. It means nothing specific apart from you are pregnant. Congratulations.

It's very common to get a darker test line than control line once your HCG reaches a certain level. It is in no way an indication of twins. Mine was darker at 16 DPO although I have no idea if I'm having twins or not, but not likely.

Yep mine are always like that at around 5 weeks. Its normal.

totally normal...and for arguments sake, I have twins and I didn't get even a faint positive until I was about 4 days late and I never had darker test lines!

I wouldn't read too much into it. The more accurate way is the blood test and your NT blood test. Sometimes that result can come up strange, but then the scan shows two babies. I had tests with a stronger control line, and some with a stronger positive line.

Mine was (on a FRER) at 16 dpo and HCG was 458.
Also has a lot to do with how hydrated you are etc.

Mine was too. But it was only a singleton pregnancy and alas it didn't stay.

It means you're pregnant, that's about it.
At 5 weeks pregnant my HCG was 11,300 and I was pregnant with only one baby. Tests and HCG levels are not a reliable indicator of much.
