So clearly this is a few hours old but the line came up in time frame 😄😄 This looks eeriely similar to my first positive in March before my miscarriage!!! (I’ll post a pic in the comments of my first test from March) I don’t want to get too excited! Did anyone else’s first positives look like this? I know pregmate…
