For all my zen yesterday

Apparently I’m going nuts today. Last nights test is on top and this morning on bottom. They’re less than 12 hours apart which is probably why it’s not darker-right?

  1. Yes. And also because darkness of tests actually isn’t a reliable way to discern Rising hcg! That is a nice strong positive, girl! Deep breaths!

    • Thank you. I needed someone with logic to intervene. I also went and looked at countdown to pregnancy and saw that mine look really good for 12 dpo so now I feel extremely grateful. Can’t wait for those betas!

  2. Your tests look great! I know it’s hard not to, but my advice now that you have a positive pregnancy test is don’t take anymore. You will literally drive yourself crazy examining the darkness of each test (believe me, I’ve done it). Just enjoy knowing that as of right now you’re pregnant and focus on your upcoming betas.

  3. It looks darker to me. A way I figured that my HCG was still rising was I bought those Clear Blue Digital tests that say 1-2, 2-3, or 3+. Once I had my two betas drawn and had my doubling times I did my math and it rose when it was supposed to change to 3+. So that made me feel better. Even though there isn’t anything as accurate as a serum HCG. I am so happy for you! Just try and relax even though that’s impossible.

  4. It IS darker! And remember, that top one is older/dryer – they do darken with time.

    I understand this, though. I tested every day for 10 days to watch the progression. And some days, they were barely darker.. Even when beta #1 was 566 @ 10dp5dt! You’re looking really good and pregnant!

  5. Even when my hcg WAS doubling it didn’t look darker than the day before. It had me so freaked out..try not to put too much faith in those tests and try to put more faith in to your body that is now pregnant. YOU are pregnant right now and that’s the only sure thing you have right now. Cherish every second and give your baby your best without worries. Easier said than done I know. Hugs!

  6. Mine didn’t really darken until about every other day – and then sometimes they would lighten a bit and I would lose my mind. And be careful of the clear blue weeks predictor tests – I did one right before our 6.5 week ultrasound and it only showed 2-3 weeks (which totally scared me). This all said I tested every day until 20 days past transfer just to see that there was actually evidence that I was pregnant. I wouldn’t suggest my level of crazy just telling you in case it helps 🙂

  7. Oh my goodness….I tried to post yesterday from my phone but it wouldn’t work! I am so stinkin’ excited for you!!! So happy and can’t wait for your beta. I need to live vicariously through you right now, lol. Congratulations on that double lin!!!

  8. I concur with everyone else. When your testing daily it can drive you made cause there are just so many variables for those tests. It looks really strong for 12dpo. Of say it’s doubling cause my FRER at 11dop was only 10 and it was barely visible.

  9. Congratulations! I am soooo happy for you!!!

    I think those lines look awesome. I would even say the bottom one is slightly darker. I totally understand the worry, though. It’s completely nerve-wracking to wait for betas and ultrasounds to make sure all is well. Deep breaths…YOU ARE PREGNANT!

  10. Right. I was told that you should expect darker every two days in line with HCG jumps. 🙂 Looks like a solid pregnant result – better than any I’ve had this year.
