Faint lines

I was reading another post and it has me worried. Everyone was saying when they had a faint line it was either a chemical or ectopic. I am scared. Are there any positive stories from people that had faint lines for several days?

My test with my DS 2 years ago was very faint even at 6 weeks and I just got my second BFP that looks the same. I'm not worried. Don't stress. Every woman is different... Don't let the posts scare u. GL

All of my tests were light.  I have two little girls and have never had  chemical nor a MC.  You'll be fine.  Don't worry yourself.

In my experience (pregnant with my 3rd now) I always get a light BFP the first time because I test 3-4 days before my period is due.  Then everyday it gets darker. 

Here is my BFP from yesterday 9 DPO barely there

and here's one I took today at 10 DPO, already getting darker

I took a FRER today and the test line was as dark as the control line. It was beautiful. Took away a lot of my fears. However, I have been having cramping just on right side and went to the walk in clinic for that as well as other things. They did a blood test which was positive. But he has a "slight concern" it may be ectopic because I am only cramping on one side and when he pushed on that side it was painful. He said he was only "slightly concerned" but I am still feeling much more confident.
