I am 5 weeks at 4 days pregnant. at 4 weeks at 5 days my hcg levels were 1296, then almost a week later they dropped to 1000. I have had a little brown spotting, not even enough to get on my underwear. But other than that no bleeding. Will i definitely miscarry? Has anyone else had a 300 point drop and still carried a healthy baby?

Im about 6 wks and my lecels dropped from 1244 down to 241 usually any drop in HCG is an indication that the baby wint make it. Im on day 5 still have not passed baby and cervix is still closed worried about a missed miscarriage. Any advice on what to look for?

Can anyone help me? I was at a 1200 dropped to a 500 rose again to a 900. at the 1200 to 500 drop the dr said its a sign of misscarry, i bleed in office a little when mirena was removed, only when i peed. by the second time i peed blood was barely any. NOthing else since. Went to the dr when i found out my levels were back at 900. She seen a 1 cm spot on uterus (size of a m&M). she said she is not sure what it is and why my levels rose.

My HCG levels were 624.9 on Monday and today (Wednesday) they are 567.7. I haven't talked to the doctor yet but I'm nervous. I had a miscarriage in April. I have slight cramping but nothing like period cramps. Suggestions?

Hi! I had a frozen transfer after 3 other failed cycles. On Monday I was told I was pregnant with 790hcg, on Wednesday it was 1690 and Friday it dropped but I dont know how much..... On Monday I will have another blood test done...
I have been having period like cramps (which are usually pretty bad)with pinkish spotting , since wednesday when my level actually more than doubled, then on Friday when hcg dropped I actually had red bleeding, not too much but it looked like a period!!
The nurse said it probably is a period as hcg doesnt rise again!!!
Can I still be pregnant????
Please help
