Chemical pregnancy but BFN?

So something odd happened to me this cycle ... I started bleeding a bit CD32, thought it was period starting. That night it stopped. The following night I woke up with a funny tingling in my boobs and felt they had grown a bit - I know this is a usual symptom for some people every month, but never ever for me, so I knew something was going on. I thought maybe the bleeding was implantation, and did a PT at 3am! Negative. Still no bleeding or spotting, boobs bigger and temp still up for a further 3 days, and then a heavy, painful and clotty period started. Through-out all tests were negative, although they were internet cheapos.

Just wondered if I could have implanted, if only for a very short time, but maybe not enough hormone in me for the tests to detect? Or do you really need a positive test to be able to confirm a chemical pregnancy?

I have now almost finished my period but strangely my boobs are still bigger and temp still hasn't gone down to what it usually is.

Thanks for any advice.

I thought a chemical pregnancy was failure if a fertilised egg to implant.

I thunk this might be one of this mysteries that you never find the answer to.

Hi, don't know if I can really answer your question but just to say I've had a similar experience twice now since we've been TTC. I didn't get a positive test either time (and I did plenty of bloody tests!)

Both times I had very heavy and early spotting that turned into heavy and clotty period. Although spotting for a few days before is usual for me, this was very different (heavy, bright red, stop/start) and started about both times about 7-8 DPO and lasted a week till period came.

So not sure that's any help, just to say that it does sound to me like it could have been something unusual happening.
