Should faint positives be progressing everyday? Af is due today and I have tested three days in a row with faint positives but they all look the same. They are not getting darker, should I be worried? I'm struggling to post a picture.

Hi there. HCG doubles every 48 hours so yes they should be a tad darker but if they are cheapies don't fret too much because they all have varying amounts of dye in them. Congrats on your bfp.

Hi Sel, the first time I used a FRER and then the next two days have been with the .88 ones from Walmart. I am also temping and so far my temp has stayed high. I have never had a chemical pregnancy or mc but reading so many different stories has me concerned.

Yeah don't worry. The first test you used (the FRER) is like the cadillac of tests - very sensitive, reliable etc and the walmart ones are generally good but no way as good or reliable as the FRER. The best thing to do is to test with the same brand and type of test 48 hours after the first one and then compare the lines. Or, you could go to the doc and get quantitative betas done and then have them repeat 48 hours later to make sure your numbers are doubling as they should. :D

Took another frer today and it was negative. I did use 4mu but I'm already 2 days late. Shouldn't it show something already? I'm so discouraged and getting depressed. My bbt went up yesterday and today back down to the way it was the previous day. I don't know if it's a cp or I'm just not pregnant.

I'm still waiting for AF to show up. My bbt went under my coverline today so it seems like I just experienced my first cp. Pretty discouraged but looking forward to next month. Thanks for all your help.
