Hi all. It seems like I only post on here when I am panicking about something...but I could really use some words of reassurance at the moment. Because I am in Canada (BC) I would not normally have my first scan until around 12 weeks (barring any complications). I have a friend who works in a fertility centre, though, who has kindly arranged for me to have a scan today - I am 10 weeks and 2 days today (based on my last menstrual period). In the first few weeks after getting my BPF, I tested a fair number of times using First Response tests, and the test line got a bit darker each time I tested - to the point where, the last time I tested, the control line was fainter than the test line. I am very worried about my scan today, due to diminishing symptoms (not that I had very many to begin with - just slightly sore breasts), so I (stupidly) decided to get a test, assuming the test line would be as dark as previous tests. Well, it wasn't - in fact, it was quite faint. I know it is impossible to tell hcg levels via pregnancy tests. I know all sorts of factors can affect how dark the test line is. But I have taken multiple tests (all First Response) under a variety of conditions (first morning urine, in the evening, after drinking a lot of liquid and not drinking a lot of liquid etc etc) and the test line always got darker than the previous test. So this faint positive has really got me worried, to say the least. I know that I will get my answer during my scan today. But the reason why I took the test was to semi-reassure myself so I wasn't in panic-mode before the scan. Now I am in extra-panic mode, ironically. I guess I am just looking for some "good vibes" and maybe, if someone out there is as paranoid as me who has had the same experience (strong lines, then a faint one) and it turned out OK, to tell me that.
