Another loss

I had a feeling a couple of days ago that something wasn't right. I started bleeding more and the next day decided to test again. It was lighter than the first test, but I had been drinking a ton of water (to get down the Welcome Womb and Emergen C). I tested the next day with first morning urine, and it was darker than yesterday's test but lighter than the first one. I still had a sinking feeling. I gave it two days, then tested again. A positive, but barely there. Another day, and the line was so faint that you had to hold the cartridge on a slant. The next day, glaringly negative.

I know that "they" say that you can't go by how dark the line is to determine whether you're miscarrying. I'm here to tell you that "they" aren't always right. It happened last time and it happened this time. I believe that there's probably variances within brands [on how dark the line will turn up] but I think it's a safe assumption that if the line is fading significantly [as well as you having a feeling things are "off" or your symptoms fade] that there's a good chance that things are not going well. I will post pictures of the hpt's in a few days.
