Not sure PG is sticking:(

I tested at 13dpo and got 2 strong lines.  Test line was lighter but it was fairly dark.  AF was due to arrive at 15dpo and still has not arrived.  But I took a test today at 18dpo and got two lines but the test light is really light. It's more what I expecyed to get at 13dpo.  I know with my DD that when I took a 2nd test at 18dpo I got 2 very strong dark pink lines. 

Trying to be optimistic but fighting myself to be realistic too:(

    Sending sticky dust your way.

    Did you use a different brand of test? Or one from a new box?  Maybe that is why the line was lighter.

    The test was from the same box as my BFP.  The only wierd thing was that the control line was not a perfect rectangle...it had wavy lines on the side.  So maybe it's defective?  I have a standing appt with OB for a couple of months.  It's this Thursday, so I will go to that.  I may buy more tests.  I don't know.  It's like I want to know if I have a viable PG but I also just want to go on thinking I'm fine...but I want to know the truth.  Mind games...hate them.  Happy, sad...not sure what I am.

    They say...."a line is a line".

    I hope that is is sticky...keep us updated. Sorry it's not totally clear.

    I'm sure you're pg. A line is a line. If it will make you feel better go buy a couple of digitals. I like the CBE and FR Gold Digital.  The time you need to be concerned is if you start bleeding (bright red).

    I'm not sure if this helps but the only time I got a dark line was the first day I got my BFP w/ DS. I tested every morning for the next 5 days (I had tests to burn-LOL) and the line actually got lighter! Weird.

    The hue of the line doesn't determine how pg you are...a line only determines that you ARE pg.  So, my advice?  Stop POAS or at least get a digital so you're not analyzing how dark or light the line is...and get to the doc's to confirm your pg with a blood test!  Good luck and hang in there!

    I really think that if you are getting a line you are OK.  I had an issue (CP last cycle) with a positive and then some negatives, but I only got positives on digitals and NOTHING on any tests with lines.  The whole week, NO LINES.  If you are getting a line, it could just be the concentration of your urine that is causing the lines to vary.

    Do you have a doctor's appointment for blood tests?  My doctors don't typcially do them, but because I was so concerned (read: cried on the phone and in the office) they did a couple for me.

    Good luck!  ::lots of vibes coming your way::

    I'll send you lots of sticky dust and hope there are just varying circumstances to cause the lines to vary.  That is why I always prefer to go digital when I test!

    My advice is to stop testing and get a blood test. You'll drive yourself crazy with those tests. I tested 3 times and the lines weren't getting darker and then I said screw it and got a blood test. That's the only way you'll know for sure and if it's positive you can relax and throw away those HPTs. Good luck!

    Good luck...sending sticky dist and lost of positive vibes your way.  I agree with the other posters who suggest that a "line is a line".  I'd say you're still in the game!!!

    Hi BCN68,

     This happened to me with my DD. I took several test after I got my BFN at 13DPO and the lines were very faint compared to the bold line on the 13th day. I purchased the CBE digital test and it confirmed my BFP.. 

    GL, I'm sure you will have a healthy 9 months.
