So I feel like I’m asking a stupid question… but how long is too long to look at the test strip? I’ve heard about evaporation lines and now I’m scared its wrong? I was taking a shower right after taking the test- so I told hubby (its awesome that I can call him that now!) to look at the test after 3 minutes. He did and he told me it was negative. Which made sense to me because my face had started to break out which it does when I’m about to get my period. He said the single line was super faint. Which I thought was odd but I did have trouble getting my bladder working first thing in the morning… so I don’t know I thought it might be that I would pee, stop for a sec, pee, repeat until I got it going.
When I got out of the shower, maybe 10 minutes I was in there total, we had a dark single line and a light second line. The second line is absolutely there. But my husband was like yeah, but thats 8 minutes after I checked it…
This is a First Response 6 days before red line test. I have First Response digitals and I will use one tomorrow morning… but how long is too long to look at the test?

Even if the second line was faint at first, it’s still an indication of a positive – so sounds like you’re pregant! Congratulations!

I would say that 10 minutes isn’t long enough for a false positive.. I always thought anything over around 20 minutes was too long. Definitely take another one tomorrow morning (or later on this afternoon!). Good luck!

Can’t hurt to try again! even without FMU you may still get a positive. I did!

@totheislnds : It was pink.
I think I’m officially freaking out now! Like in a good way, YAY! I’m going to test again tomorrow, but last month I was suuuure I was pregnant, but I wasn’t and this month I thought for suuuure I wasn’t, and now there is a second line. lol

You don’t need first morning urine to get an accurate result. Test again 🙂

I agree! test again. try a dollar store test if you don’t want to waste your digital! I found them to be accurate.
