Why Are My Pregnancy Test Results Getting Lighter?

Should pregnancy test lines get darker?

In general, yes, pregnancy test results should get darker early on as a pregnancy progresses. This is because the pregnancy hormone, hCG, typically doubles every two to three days during the first few weeks of pregnancy. After six weeks, the levels will double about every four days. And towards the due date, hCG levels actually decrease.
