test line darker than control line on preg test


Just because I'm paranoid I POAS that was left over last night.
What happened is that the pregnant line is very dark, where as the control line is barely visible. The test was a First Response test
Has anyone had this before?
I am 6 weeks now and just waiting for another ultrasound in a couple weeks.
Does anyone know if it means anything?

It means you're VERY much pregnant hun. They tend to get really dark about this stage!

I have had this a few times. It means your hormone levels are nice and high and it's time to stop testing. Basically the test line uses up most of the available dye in the test so there's none left for the control.

I was wondering the same thing. Took a test yesterday and the control line almost couldn't be seen. The pregnant line was there and very dark before the pee got all the way up the stick.

Thanks for asking Preggo1979.

Yeah, it's definitely nothing to worry about, just means your levels are increasing like they should!

I was six weeks before I even took a test and the first thing I noticed was how much darker the test line was from the control line. I think it's a really good sign.

yes its normal, i had this happen on a first response, apparently its quite common the helpline actually said that the colour can get drawn out of the control line due to the hcg being strong in the test line, so its a good sign x
