    Default Are these tests getting lighter?

    I am worried today's test is lighter than yesterdays. They go top to bottom in order of the last 3 days. All FMU at the same time. Any thoughts?

    No I don't think they are
    I had a few days where my FRER's looked like they were the same colour as the day before, like your bottom two.

    It usually takes my tests two days before I see a darker line. I think your bottom two are very similar but tomorrows should be darker

    I had this problem and found that using SMU (second morning urine) gave me far better results.

    I guess it may not be applicable now given I assume you're very early on?
    But as time progresses look up the 'hook effect' on pregnancy tests, where after a certain amount of HCG tests will get lighter as the test is overwhelmed, so you can water the urine down and find youll get a strong line again.

    As for these tests,
    the bottom two look the same too me,
    the top just the tiniest weeniest bit lighter.
