Re: What do my dark lines mean?

Nothing to worry about, a healthy pregnancy. When I was pg with ds4, my 5 week test had a purple test line and a faint pink control because my hcg was so high but it was only one baby!

Re: What do my dark lines mean?

Congratulations. preh. Could just be you have potent pee. I have never had positive stick so only blood....although I knew a gal that had taken few and they got darker faster. She thought our was won't so she went to doc and they said congrats you're expecting.....lol. I think just you're spike in time of day I hear will affect too on tests depending on how much hormone is there to detect....

Yep. My HCG has been so high with this pregnancy that my doctor was initially suspecting twins. But there is only one per last week's u/s. he just said some people's HCG runs high and it likely just means that I feel extra crappy, nothing more :-p. Honestly, I think that is a normal darkness for 6-8 weeks...we are all just used to seeing squinters and 12-15 DPO tests.

If you were thinking you're only 4ish weeks along, that dark a line may be something to look into, but at 6-8 weeks, that's just a normal line
Mine was that dark at 5 weeks this time.

Just means you're pregnant. Lines come in different colors and has more to do with the test and not your levels. I've had super dark and super faint, all singletons.

Re: What do my dark lines mean?

I'm pregnant with twins now and my lines were pretty light for a while. Congrats, though!

Re: What do my dark lines mean?

Definitely dark because of how far along you are. I didn't know about being able to test prior to missed AF with DD1 so I tested 3 days after and it was dark. Way darker than the 8dpo test I took with DD2.
