Should I have darker lines by now?


Okay so I think I'm roughly 4 weeks which I know is still very early but I got my BFP 4 days ago on the 11th and been using answer first response tests. I have been getting a pretty decent line but I've run out so using cheapies.

Anyway, given the great line on my frer yesterday I expected a better line on the others?

I'm going to get some more frer today to dip in the same FMU but until then I think I'm going crazy! Thanks!

Thanks I've got quite severe anxiety and this is literally keeping me on edge! I went to the doctor yesterday to be referred to antenatal etc and the next time I'll see someone is in 6-8 weeks!!! Unless I pay £100 for a private scan which I can't afford at the moment xx

Agreed, those look great. You really can't compare across tests, even ones of the same sensitivity but different brands. They all just progress differently. If it's stressing you, I'd stop testing. I did take about about 5 tests after my first BFP with this pregnancy, but only because I had them. This is our last baby and it felt wasteful just to save them to chuck in the bin unused. But if it's worrying you, I'd leave it be for now. All looks good, so enjoy it.

New FRER taken!


So I used a FRER in the same sample as the cheapies and the line really isn't getting much darker, if anything it's lighter.....

I hate this beginning stage!!!

We don't have bloods taken here, not until your first midwife appointment and that could be any time! Even then they don't test your HCG and if they do they don't let you know at all. Basically they take your word for it! It's rubbish really x
