    Thats what i had this time around i think - as far as i am aware a chemical is when the bean doesnt really implant properly so as in my case, i got very faint bfp's to start with, they got a little stronger one day and then the next they tailed off again so the pregnancy never really gets going, this all happened around 4-4.5 weeks

    I think a miscarriage is when something goes wrong after implantation and onwards - i had a miscarriage at 6.5 weeks confirmed at around 7 weeks and my HCG levels had got quite alot higher than in my chemical pregnancy

    Hope this helps?

    i lost my baby at 5 weeks 2 days, would that be classed a miscarriage or a chemical?

    and if it's a chemical does it count towards the 'three miscarriages and they do tests'?
