i took this test when my period was 3 days late. it was due the 19th and i took this on the 22nd. the line on the left is the test line. i was just wondering if its normal to be that dark? i know for sure that i ovulated the 4th or 5th of may which would put me at 20 or 21 days DPO. what do you think? could it be twins?

I took the same test and had the same result....I thought the dark line was the control though?  I bought the two pack and that second line was a little darker when I took it the day after the first. Now I am confused. :P

I am pregnant now with twins. When I took the test, it wasn't necessarily the darkness of the line that got me curious. It was the fact of how long the test took. It was as if no soon I peed on it, the line showed up. Didn't have to wait at all.

Don't really know if the darkness of the line has anything to do with that or not. Hmm. Good luck with that. If it is twins, you'll need lots of it. I know I do. Lol.

Is that a First Response test?

If so, they are designed to test at a minimum of 25 mIU/ml, but usually closer to 15. Since it doubles everyday, and those tests are designed to pick up the HCG levels as early as 5 days BEFORE your period and you tested 3 days late, I would say that line is normal, or maybe even a little faint.

All of my pregnancies had a dark line about 3 days before AF was due.

I am a Canadian,breastfeeding (it IS best, there is nothing even close to that nutrition and bond), co sleeping, extended rear facing (if you don't rear face to the maximum of your seat, you're NOT doing all you can to protect your child), baby wearing, Non spanking (I want my kids to respect me, not fear me) ANTI- CIO, homemade baby food making, cloth diapering, organic (chemical free household!) recycling mama to TWO and one on the way! My husband is my equal and best friend, not my master and I believe basic health care should be a human RIGHT, not a privilege.
