A chemical pregnancy is like a cruel joke. You take an early pregnancy test around the time your period is due that shows a faint positive. Naturally, you get excited and start spreading the joyful news that you're expecting. Then, a few days later you get your period and the doctor says, "It was just a chemical pregnancy."
When the pregnancy develops to the point that ultrasound could confirm the existence of the pregnancy, the term becomes clinical pregnancy. Thus, a chemical pregnancy would be a miscarriage before the fifth week of gestation -- or within about week after your missed menstrual period.
The primary symptom of chemical pregnancy would be if you begin to have vaginal bleeding shortly after having a positive pregnancy test. Blood tests reveal low hCG levels that are decreasing rather than increasing.

On the day sepatutnya I period, tapi sampai ke malam tak period pun, I decide nak buat upt test. Inilah masalahnya bila ada upt test kat rumah. Pantang delay, nak test saja. The results +ve. Ada satu line pekat dan satu line samar. I dah happy sorang-sorang masa tu. Rasa macam, syukur..akhirnya pregnant balik. Tapi I diam saja. Tak beritahu pada partner.
After 3 days, I try lagi upt test. Result sama. Dua line walaupun yang satu tu samar. Kali ni I tunjuk pada partner dan since line tu masih samar, partner kata jangan too excited. Next week buat test lagi. Baiklah....
After a week, period pun muncul....
Think positive, azura! *tepukbahusendiri.
