Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some information on the subject.

Bleeding during pregnancy is not uncommon during pregnancy.  Some women even have what seems like a regular period each month during their entire pregnancy.  This is perfectly fine for you and the baby.

Your hCG levels can decrease due to the bleeding, but only your doctor can determine whether or not it is negatively effecting the pregnancy.  Your doctor will keep you informed during your regular check ups.

Let us know if you have any more questions.
