Chemical Pregnancy Experiences

I’m new here but was hoping someone could share their experience with me. TTC for 11 months and I got faint BFP day after AF was due (Weds). I tested each day and the line was been getting darker and darker. Yesterday my period arrived after a pretty strong positive test in the morning. Can anyone tell me, what comes first with a chemical pregnancy, the bleeding of the negative test? Or does it vary from person to person. I’m assuming the worst here but would like to hear from someone who has gone through similar. Thank you! 😊

You could book a private scan? I did with my first and so glad I did!

Yeah maybe I should be more pushy about a scan sooner. It's my first planned potential pregnancy so I just feel like I don't know what I'm doing! 🙈 Hmm. The private scan place does scans from 7 weeks so I'd need to wait another week anyway. Thanks ladies. X

Thank you for all the advice everyone. I'm going for an early scan tomorrow. X

That's great @Ellie42567, definitely a smart idea. Hope all goes well and let us know how it goes!

So I had my scan yesterday and they couldn't see anything. 😢 They said it's either too early, miscarriage or ectopic. There is blood in my uterus which is why I'm bleeding. They took my blood and hcg was only 632, I'd have thought it'd be more if I'm 6 weeks on Tuesday but she was happy with that number. Need to see if it doubles by Tuesday. X

@ellie42567 Okay, well at least now you have a better idea of what's going on and will be getting closer monitoring. The whole "call in 3 weeks" thing seemed really casual to me.

Also, I think it's really important that you don't feel like you're causing a fuss or overreacting, because this is your body and future we're talking about! I'm sure any doctor would rather be a little extra careful than miss anything.

Sending love and fingers crossed for next Tuesday!

Big hugs... I'm glad you went for a scan although im sorry it wasn't the news you were hoping for.
Shocked at your gp- ive been told to have early scans for history of ectopic too (last time the nhs refused before 6 weeks but private agreed to just before as i had similar 2 years ago, positive tests and symptoms but a normal period). Mine ruptured at 6 weeks exactly so I put the period down to that and made a fuss for very early scans in the hope I could save my other tube! Make sure if you get any pain you go straight to a&e. X

Hi guys, I had me results back today and levels have only risen by 39% in 48 hours. I'm going back Thursday for more bloods and a scan. I'm glad I ignored the advice from my GP as it's looking like another ectopic with those numbers! 😢 If I get pain before Thursday then I'll go to a&e. X

So sorry to hear that... what heart breaking news. Sending lots of love x

I've had 3 chemical miscarriages and my tests turned negative very quickly after I started bleeding. The fact yours is still strongly bfp is a ray of hope. I'd be pushing for an early scan. Best of luck.
