Does a darker line on a pregnancy test mean anything?

My period was less than three weeks ago. On a whim I took a pregnancy test and the line appeared immediately and super dark! I have always taken a test a day after my period was late and the line has always been VERY faint. I was just curious if the darker line meant anything - like maybe I am farther along than I thought? Maybe I didn't really have a period? Anyway, just curious what anyone knows.

  • if it was a positive dark line then no it just means there is more hcg in your body that it picked up .

  • Yeah it is usuallyu darker the more hormones you have in you, so maybe you are further along. ut it can vary from test to test too, but I generally never got a dark line until I was more than a few days late. Congrats btw.

  • LOL! Thanks for the laugh about being REALLY pregnant! Sorry this is anonymous, but we aren't ready to tell friends and family yet! I know the test is an indication of a certain hormone in you. I just keep thinking the dark line could mean I am further along or twins! LOL! Guess I will know in a couple months when I see the doctor.

  • only if its a plus sign not just one line cause there is one line that if you pee on it it shows up immediatly to show that the test is working. that one is the vertical line the horizontal line is the one that you need to look for. one line means nothing.

    Sorry I wasn't clearer. This is my fourth pregnancy! LOL! I was talking about the second line.
