Not necessarily... I have used first response with all three of my pregnancies (2mc's and a live birth) and my first positives were always very faint! You're right that there's nothing to do but wait. I know it sucks... I've been there a couple of times now myself.

It is not uncommon to have breakthrough bleeding (even red blood) around the time AF would be due, so you'll have to just keep testing. It will likely take at least 48 hours to see a marked change in the darkness of the line. If you are still in limbo after the weekend, maybe call your doctor to see if they will check your betas to ensure they are doubling correctly and give you an answer as to what's going on.

Thank you for responding. I'm just going to wait and see what happens, and will test again on Monday. I will keep you updated.

As of moment, it's still just some brown discharge and actually a little less and lighter in color than last night. I wore a liner today and have been up and going for 4 hours now and there's nothing on it yet. Just when I wipe, I have a little bit of a slimy light brown discharge. I'm hoping and praying it goes away and I don't start bleeding.

Bleeding or spotting in early pregnancy is quite common just to give you some hope I had spotted trough out my first trimester.
Good luck and a sticky bean I wish you !!

Well, I went from barely nothing to this. Sorry for the gross picture. Does this look like normal spotting?

Unfortunately it's impossible to know by what it looks like! I had fresh blood, just not a lot with my first miscarriage and my doc said that fell within normal limits of breakthrough bleeding and that I'd just have to wait it out. Basically if you see normal AF like flow, especially with cramping, that would be a not so good sign. With what I see in your picture, I'd say there's a good chance that's just related to implantation.

How does it compare to what you see before AF comes?

It looks very similar to what I usually have before I start my period, but normally, I'd have started already. There's still nothing on my liner. I just see some when I wipe. It's been about 24 hrs of this now.

If it's related to implantation/ breakthrough bleeding, I believe it can last up to 3 days or so and there can even be some light flow, just so you're aware. My guess is you'll see it ease up and go away. ;)

Absolutely. I've got my fingers crossed for you! And don't hesitate to call your doctor tomorrow. They likely will just tell you to wait, but they'll also probably tell you that spotting around this time is normal. Sometimes hearing it from a medical professional helps ease the anxiety!

It's kind of funny, but I went and bought 4 pregnancy tests yesterday. I took a Clear Blue pregnancy test a couple hours ago. I got a pretty, dark colored positive within the first minute.

I do still have a little bit of light brown discharge when I wipe, but not everytime I wipe. Wearing a liner again, but nothing has gotten on it so far.

I called and made an OBGYN appointment. It will be on August 18th. Assuming all goes well, I will be exactly 8 weeks then. I asked about my spotting and they said they would get a nurse to call me, but it may be tomorrow morning before she does.

So, I'm trying to relax and not worry. Hoping and praying that this spotting is just normal and will go away. I know that this will be a long 25 days waiting for my appt.

Also, this is what I got when I last wiped.
