is it normal for pregnancy tests to show up lighter at 10 weeks? i had one lying around & decided to use it but it came back much lighter than it did at beginning of pregnancy now im worried that something might have happened :/

Age of test, type of test, and type of urine can all impact this. You are not less pregnant as a result of a lighter value. Hope this helps.
