Is it a chemical pregnancy??

I did a pregnancy test on the 22nd of September while being 2 days late with my period and got a very faint positive. Today I did an other pregnancy test before noon and also got a very faint positive! So My tests are not getting darker, I would even say that my second test is slightly lighter
Should I be worried??

Nope!  Try not to worry!!  Make sure you are reading them the right way which is however the instructions that came with told you.  If you let a pregnancy test sit, for example, after the time has passed that the instructions say to read the result, a second line can form that is an evaporation line.  But if you followed directions and got two positives, that's great news!!  You are pregnant.  TRY not to worry.  I know I was super afraid of miscarriage but nature will take course here and things should be fine.  You won't get many symptoms right away and they normally really start around 6 weeks after conception.  Congrats!

I see you are wondering about a chemical pregnancy. There's no reason to fear that at this point, hon.  Let me know how it goes.
So I started bleeding the day after! So I’m thinking it’s a chemical pregnancy. I am bleeding A LOT and was wondering if it’s normal...
No, bleeding a lot is not normal.  Some spotting may happen, but if you're bleeding a lot, you should definitely seek medical attention.
