Opted for a beta draw because those First Response tests were irking me!

I decided that I just will do a beta drawn to give my thoughts some much needed peace.......but instead it's got me worrying even more!
7/3 @ 9:30am- Beta HCG 80.
I took the bottom test 1 hour after getting home.
I know 1 test doesn't mean anything and we shall see Friday if it doubles after my second blood draw.
That being said....given that I got my first positive on 6/26 and it's been a week since, 80 does seem quite on the low side. I would have figured at least 200 by now!
Additionally, my First Response tests never darkened. They stayed the same darkness for 5 days and I gave up on them. Interesting....
My other pregnancy test brands (First Signal, Dollar Tree, Clearblue, and E.P.T) are still darkening every 48 hours!
I am intrigued if First Response is correct and this pregnancy isn't viable....that First Response somehow detected it?!??
Not giving up hope. We shall see in the second draw.
I am 18dpo (possibly 17). Anyone else draw beta that ended up low but had successful pregnancies? What were your beta numbers? I know comparing isn't good....but I'd like some input.

If it makes you feel better, lots of women on here had a slow start and ended up having successful pregnancies. I guess you must have just caught it super early with a very low number to begin with.
