I see the line for sure no the 1st from the left First Response (FR) test and even though it’s faint, I can still see it on the one on the right. I’m not so good at reading the strips, though.

Why don’t you take a digital test, the one that estimates how far along you are? I’d say that you’re pregnant for sure, but I don’t honestly know if a home pregnancy test (HPT) can tell you that you’re having a chemical pregnancy, so I wouldn’t get worked up there, BUT if you want to know before the 28th, go to a walk in clinic like Doctor’s Care if you’re in the US and get your blood drawn there. Fingers crossed (FX) for you!

I included a few common acronyms to help you out. Stick around here and you’ll be thinking in TTC lingo before you know it. Keep us posted, please! πŸ™‚

It’s possible it’s a chemical…it’s also possible it isn’t. TBH, It’s just too early to tell. In terms of progression, the “rule” is that your numbers should double every 48 hours, so you really want to be comparing every other day (if you are even going to). Some people just implant late…or have slower numbers…and still have healthy babies. I know it sucks so hard, but really all you can do is wait.

my lines were getting darker, then i had one that was lighter than the rest. i didnt have a long enough hold and that was the reason it was light. how far along are you??? if youre not bleeding the hope is still there!

With this pregnancy I ovulated later than normal and I had super faint lines, but had bloodwork done and my hcg was in fact doubling, but at 4w it was only 21!!! I’m now 22w pregnant. I have had chemicals though and my tests were faint as well and AF came just a couple of days late. It really could go either way. I hope it works out for the best!!

It is possibly a chemical pregnancy but also it’s possible it’s not, the pregnancy tests don’t tell you that for sure.  When did you take all of the tests?  Were they all FMU?  It could be something as simple as not a long enough hold or you had too much water and your urine is more diluted.

Last cycle I had faint positives that got lighter and lighter until gone. AF came the same day = CP πŸ™ I don’t mean to get you down… There definitely could be other reasons!  And I totally get how you feel about trying so long that you don’t even expect a positive anymore.  FX for you!!

As long as you arent severely cramping or bleeding you can assume you are pregnant.  There isn’t really anything a doctor can do for you if its going to be a chemical, so the best thing to do is take another test in a few days and see if it gets darker.
