I posted my BFP a week ago. I got early results at 9 and 10dpo. One of those was a digital. Everything was going along just fine until I decided that I would poas so I could see darker lines. Well, the lines are def there, but still much fainter than I would like. I am so upset. I know that sometimes the lines mean nothing, but sometimes people with light lines go on to miscarry. I am just now 4 weeks 1 day.

I hope this passage from a site about miscarriage puts some of your worries to rest. "Blood is the far more reliable body fluid for monitoring hCG levels.

The reason is that blood maintains a fairly steady composition at all times, thus making it easier to monitor changes in chemicals such as hCG. In contrast, the concentration of urine will fluctuate heavily throughout the day based on how much fluid you drink, how frequently you use the restroom, and other factors. Less concentrated urine means a lighter colored home pregnancy test line."

Basically it says that hpts are not reliable at indicating the amount of hcg because of reasons stated above.

You have no other indications that you may have a miscarriage, right? PTs for a sticky little bean.
