I think a chemical pregnancy is when the miscarriage happens really, really early.

A chemical pregnancy is the clinical term used for a very early miscarriage. In many cases, the positive pregnancy test was achieved before the woman

A positive pregnancy test, but with levels of pregnancy hormone (beta hCG) too low for ultrasound documentation of a pregnancy

so, would you (likely) get a BFP or no? or would it be like getting a BFP, going to the dr and turns out you're not pregnant

But you are correct they are both miscarriages and you would have a BFP with both.

Chemical is basically just a late period. Some people mourn them for various reasons and that's their deal. Technically, however, it's nothing major.



I've had 2...possibly 3. I got light BFPs and then I'd bleed a few days later.

With mine, I got a BFP everyday for three days and the following day I tested a BFN and started bleeding.

We both googled the same site. lol

my sister got BFP 2 weeks ago. made a dr appt to confirm pregnancy, that was today. dr got BFN, then did a blood test on her, and i assume is checking her levels too. he said she likely had a chemical pregnancy.

Did she ever start bleeding?

The blood test will show if her levels dropped back to normal or not. If they have not and don't. She may need a D&C but most chemical pregnancies take care of themselves. I personally bled just as much as I do on my period, if not a bit more. So it's good they did the blood test.

In 2009 I got a BFP before my missed period. I ended up getting my period 4 days late and when I retook a test it was a BFN. That's a chemical pregnancy. I got a BFP but still got my period, inwhich was the miscarriage.
