Definitions for "Chemical pregnancy"
A positive pregnancy test, but with levels of pregnancy hormone too low for ultrasound documentation of a pregnancy.
Biochemical evidence of a possible developing pregnancy based on a positive blood or urine pregnancy test; at this point, pregnancy is presumptive until confirmed by ultrasound (see also clinical pregnancy).
An apparent, but not real, pregnancy. The hCG level in the blood rises high enough to yield a positive pregnancy test, but then stops rising and does not lead to a clinical pregnancy.
