Is this the hook effect? Really freaked out

Ok so at about 6 weeks I took a hpt, stupid I know and it was a blazing positive came up way before the control line. Anyway today I took one at 7 weeks and its hardly positive abd took ages to come up :-( is the hook effect true when you have to much hormones that it gets more faint or am I clutching at straws? My symptoms have been fluctuating to and seem to have also gone today aswell I'm so worried. Here's the picture. I'm so confused as I had such a blazing positive 7 days ago. Thanks ladies.

Try another test with diluted urine! I'm sure everything is fine!

Just did another test on a different test with non diluted and it was light then did another with diluted urine and it was darker, also with a frer and it was light at first but I diluted it and it didn't get much darker. Does this sound normal?

Yep! That's my understanding of it. There is so much HCG that the tests don't know how to process it. When you dilute it, it can better handle it. You're good!
