Tiredmama asks Okay, mamas, I need your help! I took a pregnancy test today (an heb brand) and after 3 minutes I could see an EXTREMELY faint line. I almost couldn't tell if it was a line or if I was crazy. I even took the test apart, because the clear plastic over the testing window was too reflective. I checked about 3 hours later (I know, you're not supposed to trust them after 10 min), but it had a faint blue thin line. Anyway, what do y'all think?
