gotten a super dark positive on a home pregnancy test at 4 wks and still had a miscarriage?  Just curious.  I got a super dark positive on a hpt when af was just 3 days late.  Wondering if that is a good sign or doesn't mean anything at all.  I've had several losses and don't want to get my hopes up.

Mine were very light, so light it was almost non existant, I wondered if I was just imaging it.  A blood test from the doctor proved it for me.  I am sorry I don't know if super dark means anything.  Here's a bump hoping someone else knows.

I do know that any medicine you are taking can play with the results.

my understanding is that the darkness of the line reflects how high your HCG levels are and they could be registering so high simply because your urine is highly concentrated if you weren't drinking a lot of water in the hours before you took the test.   that is why they say to take the tests in the morning to get the most accurate read because your urine is more concentrated then.  so it just might mean that you hadn't been drinking any water prior to the test.  but it definitely means you are pregnant, so congratulations.  I wish you the best of luck and keep us posted.  I know it is hard to think about anything else but I would try to not dwell on it too much and just keep positive thoughts....

Oddly enough, with my 2 girls, it was light pink both times, but with my 2 boys, it was very dark.  Best luck!
