Back in August I had a blighted ovum. Unfortunately since them my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant and it has not worked out. For the past 3 months I would get faint pregnancy test but a few days later AF would come.

I am now a week late and I took three test. The line today is darker than the first 2 days. Even though I see lines I can't get excited because it never works out. If the lines get darker is that a good sign? Also, I sometimes have dull cramps on my overies, is that normal?

I'm sorry for your loss. Yes, it is a good thing when the test gets darker. Maybe you could go get a blood draw to have your levels checked. Congrats and best of luck!

It might seem nerve wrecking but i personally think its going to stick,it sounds like you were having chemical pregnancies and you know they leave you fertile so say a prayer i already said one for you and go to your doctor let them know what's been going on. You're going to make it think pray and breath positive it sounds like its your season congrats

Congrats!  Like the others said, the positives were likely chemical pregnancies (fertilized egg that doesn't implant or very early miscarriage)--those would not have survived and so development stopped very early. 

The darker they get at this point means that you have more HCG concentrated and that the levels are increasing--a very very good sign! 

Congratulations!

I'd say your def pregnant and its going OK! This was mine at 4 days before my period. I live these tests!

I would say it's a very good thing they are getting darker, that means your HCG levels are rising!
