Re: BFP yesterday..two more tests today...so light?

you've just proven the differences in tests, even out of the same box! also, if you want to do a progressive comparison...order a bunch of cheapies off amazon and take one at the SAME time every day...after drinking the same amount of fluids, etc....and even then the variations may occur...but usually you can see them getting darker.

congrats and enjoy!!

With my bfp's, they usually get darker every other day for me until I'm almost a week late, then they're as dark as the control.

All three look super positive. You cannot compare each positive line with the next if they are different brands of tests. It just isn't comparable at all.

The only true way to know if you're levels are rising is from blood. Get blood work, and progesterone levels checked and then rechecked 48 hours later to make sure your hcg levels have doubled

Best of luck! The lines look great!

Re: BFP yesterday..two more tests today...so light?

I don't trust any blue test period. I had HORRIBLE experiences. But I do highly suggest the FR digital. :-) Said yes for over 8 weeks! Kept me going!

Re: BFP yesterday..two more tests today...so light?

I once took a test when I was around 8wks preg. with #2. I had an u/s that morning, and was so afraid that I wasn't pregnant anymore and needed that BFP to make me feel better, well, it was SO faint I thought FOR SURE my baby was dead but my body hadn't started the m/c yet.
That baby is now 7 years old!

Blue dyes are always dull in color even when you're 15+dpo. Plus I bet you're drinking more water now that you know, right? Don't worry. My tests went from all about the same color between 11-14dpo to dark at 15+ dpo. My favorite was always the FRER.
