I read on another post that drinking too much liquids can dilute the results of a test. I would wait until the morning to test again with FMU. Good luck!!!

I always pee in a cup first, rather than peeing on a stick. If my urine is dilute, then I don't use it. If it's darker than apple juice (sorry for the comparison) then I consider it concentrated enough to use on a test.

That why I don't always use FMU. Sometimes my FMU is quite light in color.

Generally the color of your urine is determined by how concentrated it is. The darker the color, the more concentrated your urine.

If you wait four hours and drink a bunch of water, your urine will be more dilute and thus lighter in color than if you had waited the same four hours and not consumed much liquids.

Excess and waste product hormones are filtered out of your body and into your bladder. The longer you wait, the higher the concentration of said hormones will be. However if you drink a lot of water, this lowers the concentration. It's like adding water to orange juice, if you imagine the orange flavor to be hCG. The more water you add to the orange juice, the less you can taste the orange flavor.

Does that make any sense?

That being said, I would wait three or four hours before testing. If you drink more than 8oz over that period of time, add an hour. That's what my doctor told me.

It's difficult, though, that's for sure! Not only am I impatient, but considering one of the symptoms of pregnancy is frequent urination, well... it's hard to hold it!

Best of luck to you!
