  • Hi

    A chemical pg is when you get a positive test - but its just the hormones unbalanced and not a real pg - I had a couple after a m/c as I was getting ahead of myself and testing too early in the cycle!
  • Hi Jay79,

    There's quite a bit of info regarding chemical pregnancies on http://www.babyhopes.com/articles/chemical-pregnancy.html

    This is C+P'ed from that site.. 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's period was due but a miscarriage occurred before a heartbeat was able to be seen on an ultrasound.

    Hope that gives you the info you were after x
  • thanks for that it was a great help.x
