Just wanted to share my story in case anyone finds themselves in the same situation.
I'm 6w3d (31DPO) today and since I'm a POAS addict I've been taking tests every couple of days since I got my BFP.
This morning I took a test using FMU and while the test line was still very dark it was much lighter than it had been previously. It worried me a little bit but after a couple of google searches I found that at a certain point your HCG levels will get so high that they mess up the test and your lines start to getting lighter.
So to test this I used SMU but this time I diluted in a cup with a bunch of water. The test line came up super dark instantly.
Oh my goodness thank you thank you thank you!!! I was starting to freak out because the second line got really light, thought i was having a miscarriage, and literally called my doctor (couldn't even get ahold of a nurse), continued to panic, and then decided to look online. Totally works. Would be a fun science project, after all of the freaking out. Thanks!!!!
