Why is my line not getting darker???


Wondering if someone could answer something for me - i've taken tests a couple of days ago and had very very faint line (and cross!) but went to docs and they said it's negative because its too faint (on their one) but showed mine and they said yes its there but still faint - been doing them over the last couple of days (and still ) and they are still the same very very faint!! Do i take this as a positive? Could i be pregnant and just to early???

How many DPO are you? What tests are you using? Are you testing in FMU?

I would say its not over til the fat witch arrives! you may just have low levels of the hormone needed to detect - there has been many threads on here that Clear Blue need higher levels than some other tests (like cheap ones from supermarkets).

Ensure you test in you first morning pee (or hold it for a few hours!

A line (or cross) is a line not matter how faint so I wouldnt give up hope. Hope this is your BFP!! good luck

Oh i hope so.....been trying since April, so know when there's nothing on the test - i've eld it up to the light so many time hoping to see line - probably is just hormone levels. Done first response and got faint line and also clear blue. Just a bit worried as friend had lttle line and didn't get darker and it was because the egg stopped growing!! So got doubt in head!! As you say its not over till fat witch comes!! ha ha - thank you..x

I read on a pregnancy test insert the other day that the faint-ness of the line doesn't matter. If it's there, it's positive. So, I would say, congrats!

I had the same problem. I was due on the 2nd. I tested on the 1st and got a faint but good line and also a pregnant on a digital. I retested on the 3rd and still had a faint line and then on the 4th and still had a faint line. I was hoping that i was just one of those people who had slow rising hcg but this morning i had a negative test and started bleeding so for me it was good. I hope this doesn't happen to you and your lines get darker soon. Good luck

A line is a line no matter how faint. Wait a couple days before retesting as hcg levels will have chance to double then and then use fmu as hcg is stronger. when i had a faint positive i had to wait a week for the doctor to retest then i got a strong positive.

Thats what my doc said to come back on thursday to test again - can't go there again and them telling me its t weak to confirm as positive - burst into tears last time she said that! I'm never this late - i'm regular as clockwork so fingers crossed! How many days late were you when yu done your first weak test then? and was it exactly a week after you went docs? xxx
