    Default Testing positive but faint

    Hi all,

    So I tested positive 11 DPO (in the morning) with a VERY faint line. I then tested two days later (in the arvo) and the line was still VERY faint. The digital test says 1-2 weeks pregnant with a positive read.

    I know I am over-thinking it, but shouldn't my line get darker as my levels increase? I made a doctors appointment for a week away, but I don't want to go if I am not really pregnant. Does the strength of the line matter?

    11DPO is still very early.. HPTs prob take at least 2 days to get darker. A BT will be more accurate.. good luck!

    First morning urine is more concentrated so you will get a better result than doing an afternoon pee try again in the morning and see if its any different good luck
