2 days before my missed period (one week ago), I took a HPT and got a dark, positive pregnancy line. I've had all the normal pregnancy symptoms this week and today, I took a second HPT just to confirm the pregnancy. I used the same brand test, but this time I got only a faint line (much lighter than the first test).
I am 4w4d pregnant and I'm just concerned because shouldn't your pregnancy test lines get darker, not lighter? This is my 3rd pregnancy and with the other 2, I always got really dark lines from the start. I've been having mild abdominal cramping and lower back pain, but nothing too intense. No spotting or bleeding, so I know I shouldn't be too worried, but the pregnancy test just makes me worried.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? Did you go on to have a healthy pregnancy or can this mean an impending miscarriage?
