    Chemical Pregnancy or not?

    I'm new to all of this. I'm 36 soon-to-be 37 TTC. August 27th, I took a EPT and got faint positive, took it again on 28th faint positive and took another Clear Blue pregnancy test on August 30th and got pregnant. Then on Sept. 2 I started bleeding. I went for blood test on Sept. 4 and Sept. 6. HCG level on Sept. 4 was a 4 and HCG level on Sept. 6 was a 2. I saw a new OB/GYN (as I had just moved to the area). She claims that I was never pregnant because any HCG level under 5 is considered not pregnant.

    However, my question is obviously I must have had an HCG level of 30 or more when I took the pregnancy test and shortly thereafter my HCG levels must have fallen triggering the bleeding and then as I was bleeding my HCG levels must have plummeted? Is that not the more logical explanation than hers claiming that my pregnancy tests were false positives? That does not make any sense to me? I don't think she even read my file to know which dates I took my pregnancy tests.

    Please help was this a chemical pregnancy or just a false positive?
