Chemical pregnancy - how long did your bleeding last?

Hi.  

I started bleeding 27 days ago.  It was brown, light, with tissue.  One week later, I took my first pregnancy test and it was positive.  My hcg levels were in the 600s, but when I got an ultrasound, they found nothing.  The doctor said I probably had a complete miscarriage at 1 or 2 weeks pregnant.  However, the day after the ultrasound, my hcg levels doubled in another pregnancy test.  A few days later, my hcg levels went back down to 600 after experiencing heavy bleeding and pain.  They said I probably had a miscarriage at 2 or 3 weeks.  

However, 27 days later, I'm still bleeding. The bleeding had been getting lighter and lighter, until it turned brown again and almost stopped.  But starting a week ago, it's been getting heavier again, red, and there's some tissue.  I took an at-home pregnancy test today and it said positive.  I couldn't be pregnant for a second time because I haven't had sex.

How long did you guys bleed after a chemical pregnancy (which this must have been)?  Most women with chemical pregnancies don't even know they're having it, so why am I bleeding for so long?
