I chart...so I think I ovulated around the 21st or 22nd of February...i took a test yesterday, one day before my period was due...and got a faint but could be seen positive...after a few minutes it got a little darker. I looked up my estimated due date online and it said due 11/14 an that yesterday I was 3 weeks and 6 days...should my test have been so light at that time? I am going later today to get a blood test.

Thanks!!

I took a digital test. A big old digital plus sign and the word "yes" on it.
I took three tests with my first pregnancy. The first one was faint. So I ran out the next day and took two more. The next was bright pink and the other was a digital one.

My first positive pregnancy test was when I was 3 weeks 2 days pregnant and it was very faint. I took another one a couple of days later and it was a little darker and then I took one 3 days after that and it was much darker. You're really early so I think that is completely normal.

Here is a pic of the 1st test I took... see what I mean, you can see it, but it is so light.

Mine was still pretty light compared to the control line yesterday morning with fmu at 14 dpo, even though my beta the day prior was 175, which is great for 13 dpo. With my last pg, I got a line almost as dark as the control line and the next day had a beta of 102 and got a healthy baby. You can't put much stock in how dark the lines are.
