Is it a chemical pregnancy?

Hi folks,

Just wanted to add a message. AF was due two days ago (tues and never came) I got the faintest BFP line about 4 days ago and been testing everyday since with clearblue and the lines got a bit darker everyday altho not as dark as the - line(not preg line) Its the cross ones (- sign for not preg and + sign if preg. I tested this morning and the line was fainter than yesterday using FMU. I had a MC between my two little boys exactly 2 years ago at 6 weeks. A similar thing happened i tested a few times BUT the lines never got any darker and stayed very faint. This time they did get a bit darker but with my two babies when i tested the lines got darker everyday considerably. I am just so terrified its all happening again and im waiting for an impending mc. I feel really down as i want to be excited like all the naive folk who tell the world and have healthy babies but i just feel confused and let down really. I could go on to have a baby thats fit and well and the preg could progress but i feel like i cant be happy or sad just yet.

Has this happened to anyone and they have had a healthy baby or do you think im in the middle of a chemical preg and awaiting the mc to start? Please be honest...

I am getting preg symptoms, freq urination, tiredness, mood swings, veiny breasts and cramping all as usual.

...can i also add i just did a digital test which came up with "not pregnant" altho i did one a few days ago that said preg 1-2wks.

I am now prepared for the loss and am awaiting bleeding/AF to arrive. I guess its best it happens now rather than days, weeks or months down the line.

Hi LoobyLou, sorry to hear what you're going through. Have you tried your local EPU as they could take blood HCG levels every other day which would be a lot clearer and indicate whether it was a cp/mc or a healthy ongoing pregnancy, would also rule out things like an ep. Good luck x

thanks pootle. My doc here is crap, they wont let you see anyone until 12 weeks. i had a mc before and doc said "oh well, these things happen all the time dont worry abot it" when i was sobbing my heart out. He jst dismissed me and that was it when i was bleeding really heavily and cramping badly at 6 weeks along. I lost the baby and he never even batted an eyelid

What an awful experience and one you shouldn't have to put up with. Most Early Pregnancy Units accept self referral, ring your local hospital with a maternity service and ask for the epu. Good luck x
