Hi guys , my last period was on the 19th of May 2016, i am very irregular with my periods (always have been ) so no clue when I really ovulated but i felt very turned on around 6th of June to 9th of June when I had sed every night , got a negative prgnancy test on Sunday the 12th, but then 2 faint faint positives on clearblue plus on 16th of June, did a digital on the Saturday 18th which came back pregnant one to two weeks , since then been doing stick tests which have gradually got darker but nowhere near as dark as control line which worried me , (altough a futher clearblue plus on the Monday the 19th showed quite dark , since then to today the stick tests have stayed the same colour , i went into hospital yeturday with Brown bleeding which has calmed down today they took my bloods and have me a HCG reading of 85 and i have to go back I 3 days for another test , just womdering when does the test line go as dark as control ( what HCG level) and does everything soumd ok ? Very worried it will end in misscarriage.cheers all

I took 3 FRER with DD at what I think was 14,15,16 DPO none of those lines were darker than control line!
I think if the lines are staying around the same or getting darker you are ok!
It's such a game! Hang in there!

I'm currently pregnant (7 weeks 1 day) and with this pregnancy, I got a on a digital at 4 weeks 1 day (don't know when I o'd exactly, but cd 30) but the line on wondfo didn't become as dark as the control line until 5w4d, so a very long time! (I took like like 4 other wondfos in between because I was curious whether/when it would get darker).
your lines look great, imo! I've also had a chemical pregnancy/loss at 5 weeks before, and with those the lines got fainter. yours are definitely getting darker!

My test at 13 dpo (I was doing IVF so it was actually 10dp3dt) was darker than the control and my beta that day was around 115. I was pregnant with twins, which is why my levels were so high so early.

The internet cheapies take about a hundred thousand years to be as dark as the control lines, in my experience. When I was around 5 weeks pregnant with my son (who is alive and well) I took a Wondfo test expecting there to be a super bold second line - and it looked a lot like your most recent one. I was SO upset, but everything turned out fine. It's so nerve wracking, I know, but try not to draw any conclusions based on anything but whether your betas are increasing at an appropriate rate.

This time (I'm currently 7w2d) I noticed the Wondfo was darker at 25 dpo. It looks like the FRER was darker at 21 dpo.

I don't know how accurate it is, but the RN at my OB's office said the hcg had to be somewhere near 1000 before it was as dark as the control line.
I wouldn't worry. Mine didn't get dark until 20-ish dpo, but everyone is different.

I didn't have a darker than control line test until maybe 16 dpo? And my numbers at that point were over 1000.
