first time pregnancy here! Top test was Mon. On Tues, my beta was 3570 (doubling time 41 hours). My doctor doesn’t need any more blood work and scheduled me for an ultrasound. Of course yesterday (Thurs) I take an FRER anyhow and panic bc control line darker. But this morning (Fri) it’s lighter again so do you think I’m ok and should probably stop testing like a crazy girl?

Re: To all those ladies testing past 5 weeks :)

  • It's fine! Often times the darkness of the line has to do with how diluted your urine is upon testing.
    Also at some point your lines will stop getting darker and even fade a little. Again don't worry.
    Your doctor was clearly happy with your Betas and doesn't have concern so try to relax too. And Congrats!!

    Also - it's against TOU to post pregnancy tests anywhere besides "what does a positive test look like" pinned at the top of this board. You might want to remove the image now or else the bump gods probably will. 

    Congrats again!

    Posting pee sticks is going to get your picture deleted,  you need to post in the sticky thread at the top. A line is a line.
