Test line darker then control line?


So since I haven't had any blood test or scan and don't yet have true pregnancy symptoms I've been using pregnancy tests to help ease my mind by seeing them get darker... So far every couple days the line has gotten darker I will take that as a good sign. I know something could still happen even though my hcg is increasing, but I figure there is a good chance everything is going as it should.

Here are my tests from today and 2 days ago. The top one was on Tuesday and bottom today (Thursday) I want you ladies to give me your opinion. Both tests seem like the lines are very close, but me and DH think the one from 2 days ago, the control is slightly darker then test. Then the one today (bottom) it looks like the test is slightly darker then the control, meaning my hcg is definitely increasing

Do you guys see the same thing???

DHB - yeah, I'd say the test line is darker than the control line. I had that happen with a test I took 2 days ago. It's a good feeling, isn't it?

I'm confused by my dates now.

My dates by LMP is 5 weeks today.

I had a weird ovulation, I had 5 days of OPKs, and I always thought you should go by the first +opk, but FF has put me a dotted line on my last day of OPKs (I didn't actually temp, just kept track of whats going on) which means I would have tested at 8,9 and 10 dpo, which would explain the feint but defo positive HPTs.
Which date would you use?
I was also looking forward to doing a digi tommorow, but I'm worried it won't pick it up yet, if I'm actually only 4+1 instead of 5 weeks.
I suppose a digi would give me some better idea of my dates though??

a digital is just an indicator; it goes by the amount of HCG in your urine at any given time. But as Galvanbaby said recently, the normal HCG levels for around 5w is from 10 to 600 or something like that; the levels overlap too much to be able to tell really. And some people's levels rise faster than others, so who knows?

I was always told to BD as long as you're getting a positive OPK. A positive OPK is simply a surge of LH (luteinizing hormone), so if you had 5 days of positives, you had a really long surge. The surge then causes the release of the egg, so technically you can ovulate anytime from the first positive OPK, until 48 hours after the last one.

Because you weren't temping it's hard to know, but I'd assume you were more like 4+1 simply because the surge usually comes BEFORE ovulation, and shouldn't continue after it. Do you know what I mean? I don't think you would have carried on getting positives for 4 days after you ovulated, so I think you would have ovulated towards the end of your positives.

It is a great feeling! Like I said it may be silly but it gives me some reassurance

I'm the same way so far. No real symptoms, maybe some bloating, gas, decreased appetite, etc. but nothing severe that makes me feel pregnant. Since I've had bloating and gas plenty of time in my life while not pregnant. As long as everything is going fine in there, I guess we are lucky so far

I'd say just stick with the LMP for now. Once you have had a scan we can always update it. I had my first + on a digi at 3w+5 so you could very well get a + on a digi by now

I think you're right; the test line from the most recent is darker than the control

I have been using leftover ICs since I got my BFP, but this morning I used a FRER (photo attached below) and got a test line WAY darker than the control line - did NOT expect that!
