Anyone else do this?

I am so silly, but I had two extra pregnancy tests laying around, so I took one just for the fun of it to I guess "make sure" I'm still pregnant. Ha! Anyway, the test line was wayyyyyyyy darker than the control. In fact the control was super light. I wonder what this means? I used a FRER. Does this just mean I have a lot of HCG in my system? That's good right?

I think it's perfectly normal for the test line to be darker than the control line further into the pregnancy. I think it has to do with your hcG levels.

I've been taking Wondfo HPTs every morning, just for the heck of it because I had a bag of them. I like seeing the progression of the test lines. I'm hoping I can get to the point that the test is darker than the control.

Yes! It's very good!! It means your hcg is so high that the test line is stealing the dye from the control line. I did one worse and peed on an opk! Ha!! I still have two left and they expire in the next few months so I figured I might as well use them! It was fun to watch the line come up so fast!! The test line was so dark that it was almost black!!

I have! My first few tests were so light, that seeing them get darker makes me so happy! Smile

HAHA. I think we all just love POAS!... Plus they might as well be put to use. I POAS and I looked at it wrong and thought the control line was the "pregnant line" and got super worried.. That's until Roxi and some other pointed out that I was looking at it wrong and then I felt like and idiot. If you check the DYSAL you'll see how silly it is.
