Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
The hook effect
I am 8 weeks today. Being a nut job I tested for sh*ts and giggles. All along the test lines have been darker than the control but today the test line was fainter. I panicked a little. I saw a couple things stating apparently as you go along in the pregnancy your hcg levels get high enough where it almost confuses the test. Pregnant women get false positives! This is called the hook effect. So they say to dilute your pee and test again. Well I did just that and poof!!! The test line was darker than the control! So I am hoping and praying my hcg levels are nice and high. My first appointment is coming up on the 14th. I can't wait.
