A bit of a scare this morning

So I've been taking about 3 ic's a day just to use up the huge supply I have (I'm 5wks 3days). The first one I took today (3:30 am) scared me. It had just a slight coloring in the middle of the test line and a really light control line. It instantly brought me back to my miscarriages Thankfully, my test at 5:30 was back to normal with a pretty dark test line I'm thinking I should just throw the rest of them away to avoid unneeded stress.

Anyone else still testing?

DDC...I recommend ditching the rest or pass them along FFS to a momma in the TTC forum. Beware of the "hook effect" when testing after 6 wks. The HCG starts to get so high at that point that it can have a reverse affect on the test line & they will actually start to lighten. I totally freaked & just knew I was starting to miscarry when I tested @ 6w3d & my line was half as dark as the week before. Was so relieved to find out about the hook effect from another DS momma.

I don't have anymore tests, but I'm tempted to buy more. Seeing those lines makes it feel more real.

Same here, first response has a test line darker than the control but those darn ic's are taking a lot longer to get there. I should hear back today on when my appointment will be
