Dropping hCG Levels Do NOT Always Mean a Failed Pregnancy

Over the years, I have seen a few reasons doctors are more apt to misdiagnose a miscarriage.    A growing, empty-looking gestational sac is probably the most common reason behind a misdiagnosed miscarriage.  Measuring a week or two behind during the ultrasound causes many to be misdiagnosed as well.   Women with high hCG levels and no baby is seen is another.  These are all topics I have covered here on my blog.

Another fairly common reason a viable pregnancy is misdiagnosed as a miscarriage is because the hCG levels either plateau or drop. 

Before I begin, let's just state the obvious.  Yes, dropping hCG levels can be a sign of impending miscarriage but not always.   Let's look at some examples of misdiagnosed miscarriages because of dropping or plateauing hCG levels.

The first group of women are usually very early in the pregnancy and their levels are still under 1,000.  Mary's story (click on the links to read these stories) is a perfect example.  Not only had she had IVF so doctors were certain of dating, her levels started off low and had very slow doubling times.   Mary went through several weeks of being told her pregnancy was non-viable before finding the heartbeat.  She went on to have a beautiful baby boy.

In this same group of women, we have InGodsTime story.  The first hCG draw showed a level of 25.8.  Three days later it had dropped to 24.  The doctors told her to expect to start bleeding soon.  They were wrong and she has a baby girl now to prove it :) 

Why did these women have hCG levels that started off slow or even dropped?  Over the years, we've seen on the site that dehydration seems to play a role.  You need to stay hydrated but don't overdo the water either.  Illness may also be a reason.  Whatever the reason, we've had numerous stories of levels plateauing or dropping very early on and women went on to find their babies.

A caution though, slow-rising, declining or 'bouncing around' levels may indicate an ectopic pregnancy.  For this reason, you need to stay closely monitored until a gestational sac is viewed.

The second group of women have levels that slow down after they reach 1,000.   Let me just state first of all, this is normal.  I have talked about typical levels on my The First Trimester and Non-Doubling hCG Levels page.  Before they reach 1,200, they can double in two to three days and be in normal range.  Between 1,200 and 6,000, they can double in three to four days and be normal.  After 6,000 they typically slow down and we've seen a number of women whose hCG levels plateaued between about 30,000 and 50,000 and did not go any higher.  This is normal.

Cherbear's story is a fairly typical one.  Her hCG levels went up to the 70,000s, slowed and started dropping.  Her doctor diagnosed a miscarriage.  BelieveNPrayer has a similar story.  Her levels went up to the 40,000s and started declining.  Both women were misdiagnosed with a miscarriage.

The Misdiagnosed Miscarriage site has many more stories like these.  What you need to take away from this blog post is that declining hCG levels do not necessarily mean a miscarriage.  In fact, after the gestational sac is viewed, many doctors no longer take hCG levels because they can go up, stay the same or go down and be normal.  The most important thing is to make sure they find the gestational sac and, after that point, watch the size of the gestational sac.  Doesn't even matter if it measures a week or two behind.  What you want to see is the sac growing from week to week.  If your sac gets to be more than 25mm and no baby is seen then you likely have your answer.

  1. Hello All

    I had my ultrasound done 2 weeks ago where they saw a baby but no heartbeat. Since it was about seven weeks from LMP i was asked to do bhcg with 48 hrs interval to check viability. Results were 197000 and 246000 which were too high. But as long as it was increasing there was no issue. However they have now dropped to 186000 with all other symptoms same.

    I had follow up ultrasound today where they saw GS size of 44mm i.e. 9w5d but still no heartbeat. GS was also irregular shape so they told me it is a miscarriage as at this time there should be heartbeat. There is a normal yolk sac and no free fluid in pelvis. I am 8w6d from LMP. I still have nausea and morning sickness. I dont know what is happening. I already had a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy prior to that.

    1. Generally once the sac is measuring more than 25mm, a baby with heartbeat should be seen. (((hugs)))

  2. Hi Kay,

    Here is my story hopefully you can help me she'd some light on things. My LMP was Jan.9,2016 while on my 4th round of Clomid my cycles are normally irregular anywhere from 32-60. I received my BFP 2/14/2016 2 days after my missed period and 18dpo. The doctor went based on my LMP which put me at 8w1d yesterday but I had an ultrasound done both vaginal and abdominal and they couldn't see anything but a thick lining. My 1st appointment beta hcg was 328 on 3/4 and my beta hcg 3/7 were 500 they just today 3/8 diagnosed me to have miscarried but I am confused because my levels are rising they were off by a 100pts. Also I have been spotting / light bleeding on and off for 2 wks. no cramping or clotting. Could this be a misdiagnosed miscarriage because the only thing they said was an miscarriage or early pregnancy. I said I wanted to have my beta hcg checked again next week before I made a decision to start the medication to make sure this isn't a mistake

  3. They did rule out ectopic pregnancy and I agree with you. I definitely need better answers. Have you seen case's like mine's before what is your honest opinion? I have thick skin and it's ok not to sugar coat I just want some answer. Thank you.

  4. This is driving me crazy right now my levels a doubling beautifully. 222,975,2181,3900. However, they didn't see anything on the ultrasound until today, 5 weeks 1 day. They found a 0.49cm gs and a yolk sac. They are telling me it's too small to date and to come back in a week and that it doesn't look good at all. I'm going to go insane before next Sunday.

  5. This is my first time on this type of site. I'm hoping to get some comfort and hope with what's happening right now. I'm pregnant with my 3rd baby, I have 2 healthy children that were healthy pregnancies. My LMP was Feb 1st. I had an ultrasound when I thought to be 7 weeks and they told me I was 6 weeks, but it's normal to be off a bit. They saw the fetal pole and yolk sac but it was too small to measure a heartbeat. He said he saw a slight flutter which could've been a heartbeat. They sent me back a week later to see if they could measure one then but when I went they told me it was only measuring 6 weeks 2 days with no heartbeat. The doctor told me that since there was a bit of growth it was promising and to go back in 2 weeks. The fetal pole was only measuring 5mm and he said that's still too small to get a heartbeat. So I went for blood tests to measure hcg and was told between wed and Friday they went up normally to 51, but the test on Tuesday it was down to 48. My doctor said its not looking good and to expect a miscarriage. I still have am ultrasound booked for Tuesday and I'm hoping we will see a healthy heartbeat. The thing is my symptoms have seem to have faded but I'm not cramping. Last night I had a teeny tiny bit of dark brown discharge on the toilet paper but hardly noticeable. What do you think? Are we just hanging on the hope for this to work for nothing? Or is there a chance we will be holding our baby in November. Thanks for listening

    1. HI Chelsey,
      I am going through something similar right now.
      I have 2 healthy kids, and also had normal pregnancies with both. I found out I was pregnant with our 3rd on April 29th 2016. We have been "trying" for 4 and 1/2 years. We have been SO excited! On Monday, May 9th I had a tiny bit of light pink blood after I used the restroom. I had never "spotted" with either of my previous pregnancies, so I called the Dr first thing Tuesday. I had a internal ultra sound and there was no sight of a baby, or heartbeat. The Dr assured me that it was too early (guessing I was only 4 weeks along), so the took some blood to test my HCG levels which were 381. I went back today (May 12th) and the doc called and told me they dropped to 200ish, and to expect a miscarriage:( I still haven't had blood. I felt a little nauseous last night and still am pretty tired throughout the day. I have a major headache (from crying so much). I am still going to my appt next Wednesday with hope for some good news or a miracle. I hope everything will be ok with your pregnancy. It's so heartbreaking to receive devastating news when we want this so bad. Hang in there.

  7. Hello. I am currently pregnant with what I hope will be baby number 2. It appears I became pregnant very early this cycle (cd 6) amd i estimate in approximately 4 weeks and 5 days. I had a few days of very scant brown spotting (really just brown tinged discharge) so I was sent to do betas. They are in the mid hundreds and rising but slowly (only about 50% in two days). The spotting has now stopped and I've basically been told to wait and see...I'm losing my mind not knowing if this is a viable pregnancy...

  8. Hi,
    My wife is 6 weeks IVF pregnant.
    30 April - two healthy embryos transferred.
    11 May - HCG level was 171
    13 May - HCG level was 250
    18 May - HCG level was 115 :-(
    19 May - Ultra sound echo showed empty sac only
    20 May - HCG level was 96 :-(
    Doctor did not confirm any miscarriage yet, but asked for another HCG test tomorrow.
    She was having pain and bleeding from 07 to 17 May (small quantity, not like during period time), light pink first, then dark brown and the last 2 days red color.
    She still have swollen and soar breasts and feels tired, especially at mornings.
    Is this a bad sign of miscarriage ? :-(
    Any chance the HCG level might go up again?
    Please, I would appreciate to receive your feedback.

  9. I went to the doctor thinking that I was 11 weeks pregnant two weeks later the doctor had me do a vaginal ultrasound and then tell me that they can't pick up the baby's heartbeat that is might be too small so she had me do my HCG levels and the first test showed 6000 I went back a few days later and it said 5000 and so I called to see what the problem was and they said maybe I can be having a miscarriage and I told them I'm not bleeding or having any Major cramps at all and she said okay that's a good thing but they want me to go to a radiologist to do a better ultrasound so do you think I'm having a miscarriage please help me I feel so lost and confused I already have 2 kids and I have been perfectly fine no problems

  10. So my levels dropped last week form 6000 to 5000 I went to a specialist for ultrasounds and I didn't see anything no embryo no nothing but they did take m measurements the sack I'm assuming but she couldn't tell me nothing so I'm confused and I don't know what to think or do

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm very confused- my LMP was May 1st - that should put me around 10 weeks - although I ovulate late and my first u/s scan put me two weeks behind so I am supposed to be around 8 weeks. Went for u/s June 27th and they saw no fetal pole with gest sac measuring 12mm (6 weeks 2 days) and scheduled a follow up for July 8th - they only told me that my gest sac grew one day 13mm (6 weeks 3 days) but the crown rump length is measured at 5 weeks 5 days...I would guess a CRL would imply there is an embryo inside the gest sac. Nothing told about heartbeat or anything. Just scheduled me for HCG betas - I went Friday and my HCG was 24,274 - I went back today and it dropped to 20,307. I know a drop in HCG levels usually mean miscarriage but I have no bleeding or cramping - and as far as I knew your levels should drop to under 50 to confirm miscarriage. Do you think there could be any chance that I have a successful pregnancy? Should I ask for another beta because if I am actually between 8-10 weeks I know it drops around then...I don't know what to do - I'm just not ready to give up on my baby yet....

  12. Hello!

    i am currently 8 weeks pregnant based on my LMP. I went in for an ultra sound two weeks ago and dr saw nothing (25,000 HCG) , went in last week and dr saw sac with no baby (54,000 HCG).. Went today and sac increased in size but still no baby (51,000). Dr recommended dnc but I wanted to hold off until next Saturday to give the baby if there is a baby time to grow.. I don't want to give up on this pregnancy just yet. Just hopes and prayers now..

  13. I am really scared I was told to go in for my first visit when they calculated I would be at 8 weeks but when I went in the gs and yolk only measured at 5wk6day I was told I was having a miscarriage. I went back a week later only to be told that there was still no hear beat but it had grown to 6wk3days. at that time I got blood work done to test my hcg levels and was told that they were dropping. I have had no bleeding not even spotting and no pain,plus increased morning sickness. I feel they are calculating 2 wks ahead but I am scared that this could be a miscarriage. any one have had this happen and has had a health pregnancy? I really want my baby.

  14. Hey Eveyone,
    I found out I was pregnant on the 7th of July, by urine test, but it was faint, I went in for blood test on the same day, which was at 19, went in on the 11th and it was at 48, then again on the 13th, it was 115 and a final on the 15th it was at 263. They said i was around 5 weeks, my caculations were at 3 weeks. (I have PCOS so I never have a regular cycle. I have had 3 d & Cs also. Lost them all around 12 weeks) I do have 2 daughters as well. We have been trying for 8 years so we were very excited to get this news. We went in for a vagional ultrasound on August 1st where they did see a sac measuring 5 weeks (which is where i believed it to be) but they were a bit concerned so had me do more blood work and levels were at 1920, they had me go back on the 3rd and they went down to 1720, they called and said it was bad news and that i should start cramping and bleeding within a couple of days, which as of today, I have not had either and symptoms are still positive for pregnancy, they told me if I dont miscarry by the 8th then they will run more blood work. I do gave another u/s scheduled for the 10th. Should I still be concerned or is there hope?

  18. Hi all was just wanting to venture really , I know a lot if not all of you will understand me unlike people I talk to daily.
    So heres my story of any of you can shed any light on why this is happening to me.
    Firstly I've been trying for a baby for over 10 years (I'm now 29 years old with none)
    I found out I was pregnant in may just as I was about to got f9r infertility treatment which I obviously didn't need, sadly I lost my little pea at around 6 weeks��
    On the 29th of August around 3 months prior to my last miscarriage I found out I was pregnant again , I started spotting dark brown blood 10 mins after my home test I called my gp she said nothing to worry about , 3 days later it happened again another 3 days later it happened again I had hcg levels done it was 2168 on the day I got my levels back i had stabbing pains in the vaginal area not in my stomach they lasted about 30 mins I sat up felt a little gush so went to the toilet and I'd started to bleed and lost 2 small clots and a tiny looking bit of tissue , I went to a&e they said my cervix was closed I then went on to have further bloods that day and they had only gone up around 20 but that was in 24 hours , the day after there was no bleeding I had more hcg tests and they had dropped by 1310 ����
    But they told me yesterday I have to go back today for more hcg tests because they can go back up , my symptoms have all increased I have n9 pain and no bleeding , when they did my scan it was showing only a sac meassuring at 5 weeks and 2 days but nothing else , what do I do am I holding on to false hope? If it happens again why me twice in a row for a miscarriage? After I've been trying for so long....
    Sorry for the long paragraph I just needed to get it all out
    Hope it all makes sense
    I'll keep you all in my prayers
    Sticky baby dust to you all
    Xxxx

  19. I had an hcg done Thursday and it said it was above 7000, I went to the hospital Friday I was in some pain but nor terrible pain and it read above 5000. They didn't have the results from my PCP so I didn't think anything of it cause I didn't know that my readings from PCP were above 7000. I still feel pregnant with nausea and sore breasts but its scaring me that they had two completely different numbers. I want to keep hoping because I don't have any bleeding

  25. I am at a loss right now. I got 2 positive home tests on 9/18, I took another the next morning and it was still positive. At that time, it was thought I was about 4.5-5 weeks along as my LMP was 9/14. I had all the symptoms of pregnancy. I was super nauseous, tender breasts, fatigue. On 9/20 I had some decrease in symptoms and I called my MD. They said it was probably fine, but I asked them to run HCG quants just to ensure as I had had a miscarriage in the past. My first HCG came back 1850, which they reassured me was good. Over the next few days, my symptoms continued to wax and wain, however the MD office told me this was normal. At no time did I have any spotting or bleeding of any kind. After my second draw, it came back to show that my HCG was now 350. They told me my pregnancy was most likely non-viable and I needed to come in for an ultrasound. I went for an ultrasound that day, and they said they found no gestational sac in my uterus, the only thing they did see was 2 very small cysts on my left ovary. She said that I most likely miscarried very early, or that there was some kind of implantation problem. However I have to stress that I still have not had any bleeding. I have cramping, and haev had that off and on for the entire time of my short pregnancy, however no bleeding or even spotting. I am still having cramping now. I just do not understand how I could have had positive tests, both home tests and blood tests, but yet nothing shown on ultrasound and no bleeding only cramping.I have had a cyst surgically removed from my left ovary, and there was a small amount of damage done to the tube at that time. Could a cyst on ultrasound be mistaken for an ovarian ectopic? Does a regular trans-vaginal ultrasound show ectopic pregnancies? Would my HCG levels decrease with an ectopic? I'm just trying to make some sense out of what is going on. Any opinions? Thanks.

  29. I found out I was pregnant about 2 weeks ago with 3 positive pregnancy test (faded but positive) the nurse set me up an appointment for two weeks after. I had an ultrasound done and the dr. Found a Sac but no baby. He said it might be in early pregnancy my HCG levels went from 12560 to 11983. I am not having no cramping nor bleeding. I feel very pregnant but with my HCG levels lowering a bit does that mean I am miscarrying?

  32. My wife had her HCG levels checked at 8 weeks, and they were 107,000. Now at 11 weeks, they dropped to 103,000. Is that normal? Should we be concerned about a miscarriage? The doc was concerned and scheduled an ultrasound for next week, but I read online that levels can drop anywhere from 8-11 weeks. I'm confused... Any input would be greatly appreciated.

  36. I am/was 6 weeks and 2 days, went to ER 2 days ago with severe pain (which has now gone away), but haven't had any blood or spotting. Hcg levels went from 1274 to 2109... and today was at 900. We have been trying for over 2 years. Is there any chance that this could work out?? Or should I prepare for the worst??

    1. Get an ultrasound every week if you can with bloodwork up until the week of. Don't give up. If you still feel pregnant then do what you feel is right for your body and your baby. I hope and pray everything will be ok.
      I'm also clinging on to hope for my issue.

  38. I'm wrecking my brain!!!
    I'm currently still pregnant with my second baby , I hope. After my first ultrasound that was meant to be at 8 weeks , the baby only measured 6w1d & since then it's been a roller coaster of emotional distress.
    I had my second OB appointment with no signs of what should have been a growing 8 week old fetal pole. There was nothing and the sac was measuring about a week ahead of whatever they say they did find but without a heartbeat. They sent me off to a radiologist who only continued to confirm the impending doom hovering over me. I went in for a second opinion clinging on to hope but have only been left in pieces with the same bad news. My HCG levels last week where 63,000 today they are 33,000 & I can't help but think maybe my dates where wrong . If my baby had miscarried wouldn't the levels had dropped by now since it's been almost 4 weeks they assume the baby has been gone ? Would my levels still be in the 30,000? I also have no bleeding. Only slight cramps that have been there since the day I found out I was carrying .
    I've been told I have a retroverted uterus and can't help but wonder if this is what's causing all the confusing , or am I just in denial about it all?
    I'd love some feedback. My appointment to schedule the D&C is tomorrow but I can't shake the thought that I might be wrong and so are the doctors ??? My symptoms have dropped significantly as well. I went from suffering from nausea to none at all besides a little dizziness and queasiness here and there.

  39. Hello

    In UK
    I am 6 weeks 3 days.
    Had internal scan 2 days ago nice sac but empty...no sightings elsewhere of a fetus.
    Did blood test was 2489. Monday 14th.
    Today my leval is 2239 Weds 16th.
    They have said it looks to be a miscarriage.
    I have to return for a 3rd HCG test friday 18th.
    They also think it may be ectopic as I had one before and lost left tube.
    Is there any chance this could just be a blip and the pregnancy continues after?

    Thank you

    What have they said to you at the hospital?

    Mine rose back up to what they were earlier in the week...comment above last.
    They now say I'm static pregnancy. It's may stay...it may go
    In limbo.
    Also could be ectopic.

    2. Hi

      They rules out ectopic on mine. 7.3 weeks buy I measured 5.5 weeks on scan monday. I have to go back 1st Dec for 3rd scan. They are now ignoring the HCG and just dealing with what the scans say. Looks we have a small chance it's a slow grower. I've also read HCG is low in ladies carrying boys and some ladies just have low HCG.
      Good luck

  45. Hi i was lookin for advice as its driving me mental i dod pregnancy test 5 days before my period was due and was positive dod a further 3 and they were gettin stronger well my period date arrived and i started spotting that afternoon so i got in with a nurse she referred me to have bloods done went to get them on the tues the spotting happened on the mon this has been on and off all week no gushes no dark red more like bright pink and I haven't filled a sanitary towel at all its only when i wipe. Well got my bloods done then had to repeat 2 days later so i see my doc with the results and he said its not looking good as hormone has dropped I didn't ask how much by wish i did now and he said he wanted to repeat bloods again in 4 days to make sure they coming down nicely and he told me what to expect. But my confusion is that i aint bled properly and now its turned to brown when i wipe well when its there that is as i can go hours without anything ive had like stitch kind of feelings down below but thats it I haven't lost any clots nothing as yet and its been a week tomorrow �� I would b coming up to 6 weeks this week if all is ok but it is really messing with my head they haven't offered a scan but reading some of these stories makes me think they should give me one to rule out properly. Thank you for reading x

  51. Hello! This is my first time on this site. I found out I was pregnant about 3 weeks ago. I had 3 positive pregnancy test so of course I knew I was pregnant. So, about 1 week ago, I started spotting with mild cramping so I decided to go to the ER. In the ER, they didn't tell me if I had a miscarriage or anything but my HCG levels were only 25ml and I had to get them checked again in 48 hours. So, I got them checked again and they only went up to 27ml. I was supposed to go back in 48 hours but I couldn't so it ended up being more of 120 hours and my hcg levels dropped to 2ml. I'm assuming I miscarried the day I was in the ER and I was misdiagnosed.

  55. Hello Ladies,
    I just recently had multiple positive home pregnancy tests...my first one was on November 26th and everyday after that until going to the doctor to confirm on November 29th...the urine test at the doctors office came up negative so a blood test was performed and that was positive but my HCG level was at 24.5...they told me to go back two days later which was today and it had dropped to 6...and informed me that I was miscarrying. But no bleeding yet...is this way too low? My husband and I have been trying for 5 years and I've gone through infertility treatment as well...so we are so devasted with this news 😞

  56. I'm confused. I went to the doctor because of dull cramps that have been hanging around for months. I had a 10 day period but no real cramps... hand no clots and tissue. Doctor did blood work and a UA. UA came back at 4 weeks pregnant 1 week after bleeding stopped. Did more blood work 72 hours later. Came back that my hcg levels dropped from 500 to 200. She suggested that I had a miscarriage. I had also donated blood on the week I was bleeding and my hemoglobin was at 14. If I has a miscarriage how was my hemoglobin normal and how did they not test my blood and find out I was pregnant when I donated. So how is this possible. Was I pregnant or am I still pregnant?

  57. We found out we were pregnant Oct 30 this year. I went in to the dr that week. According to my cycle I should've been about 6 weeks. But the sac was too small for that age. Needless to say I've been going back every week since. Last week they found the yolk. My numbers went from 7100 to 24,000. This week they saw what they believe to be bleeding in the sac. No fetal pole was ever found. I'm having no cramping or bleeding at all. Then my numbers came back at 23,400. So they dropped....is there still a chance this could be a viable pregnancy? I've been praying that God shows the dr's a miracle! This will be our second child. I'm having all the same normal pregnancy symptoms.

  58. Really looking for answers and hope. I had 3 positive at home pregnancy tests. Called made appointment with my doc and they verified my pregnancy. They did a scan which up until now I have never had one before 12 weeks ever and I have had 8 children. The scan showed gestational sac yolk sac and they embryo. The nurse wrote down the wrong date for my LMP. A difference of 10 days. So they are looking for a baby that is 8 weeks and we have one not quite 6 weeks. No heartbeat found but my doc ketchup saying it was too small. Had blood work done. 19151 was my levels at 5 weeks 5days. Which he said was rather high. Two days later it dropped to 15495. And then 2 more days 12000. I have no signs of miscarriage still going through all pregnancy symptoms and they don't want to do another scan yet. I found a site that said if your levelso are really high that early you body will start dropping at 7 weeks which I just made 7 weeks on Sunday. I just need to know if I have any hope at all. I am getting no support from my care team.

  71. Hey! I'm looking for some help if anyone has some advice for me, I just found out that I am pregnant. 2 days ago I had blood drawn and they said my hcg level was only 480 which means I'm not far along. Well this morning they asked me to come give more blood and it had dropped to 260. At this time the nurse told me (over the phone) that this means I would miscarry. I have had no pain or any signs of bleeding at all. and I'm just so upset!! I just feel like I'm not. I just need some opinions if anyone could help me please! Thanks.

  72. Hello, I am in the same situation found out I'm pregnant in Friday 30th. That same day my levels were 266 today they went down to 27 the nurse said " your body should be getting rid of it in the next two weeks if your body don't do it come to the office and we will give you medicine to get rid of it". I'm all sad thinking what the heck? Don't they care to find out what is really going on? My boobs are sore and I'm hopeful that it's just a mistake. I have not bleed yet and abdomen hurts a little but I can still feel it.

  73. I found out after emergency surgery that I was pregnant with levels at 7, had repeat bloods done levels increased to 77, and 48 hrs later increased to 170, then they slowly rose. On 23/12 u/s showed fetal pole and one of each sac. On 28/12 follow up u/s showed one GS and 2 yolk sacs measuring 1.3mm and 1.7mm respectively but no fetal pole found. Waiting for u/s on 9/1 is killing me. By last u/s dates I should be 6weeks 6days today. I am having brownish black discharge after using the toilet but only then and no clots or tissue as its more like thrush discharge and no pain except for where the appendix was removed.

  78. I had a positive test 1/4 LMD was 12/6. My first prenatal visit on 1/23 was still positive. Then I started spotting on 1/30 the ultrasound said i was 6 weeks not 8 and had a visible sac and a fetal pole, no heart activity HCG was 12348. The dr said it was a normal 6 week pregnancy. Then I started spotting again on 2/2 with low back pain, by 2/3 i was cramping. Went to er and i started bleeding and seeing clots. My hcg dropped to 8700 and US did not show a sac or fetal pole. They deemed it a miscarriage.

  79. I really need advice.. I'm 6 weeks 2 days.
    I went to the er Saturday the 5th with brown spotting nothing serious, well my levels were up in the 8,000s saying everything was fine. I went home happy and not worried. Well I went back to er the 8th for little blood off and on from brown to red. When I got to er they took my blood and said my levels went down to little above 6000s and did not do an ultrasound. And I was quick to get told I had a miscarriage and I was discharged. I'm so lost that I have had 4 previous miscarriages and my doctor put my on baby aspirin because of blood clots saying this baby will make it. Well I have an ultrasound the 10th. Could this really be a miscarriage? Here it is 7 hours later after I left er I have no bleeding. My breast still ache..

  83. I'm going through something similar..
    I have been spotting brown with no cramps or clots for nearly 2 weeks, had a blood test to confirm pregnancy , then another one to see if levels were dropping or rising. - they were dropping but I wasn't told what they were or what they had dropped to. I am still having symptoms of pregnancy and I have an ultrasound next week to "see if all the tissue is passing or cleared" - drs words .. I should be 6weeks 4 days as of today making me 7weeks 1 day by the time I have ultrasound done. I've had 2 miscarriages before this and I'm not suffering any of the "common" symptoms of a miscarriage so I'm very confused. Is there any hope for me ? .. Please help ..

  84. Hi I'm so confused, got a positive test 2/7/17 then 2/18 I went to the er because I thought I had a bladder or kidney infection, was told I should almost be 6weeks but my hcg level was only 1000, ether I was having a mc or was less than 4wks, started sporting every time I wiped, 2 days later started bleeding lightly, went to the er 2/23 hcg level 740 was told I was having a mc the next day I started cramping badly and pain in my lower right side, today 2/25 went back to the er because my back pain became sever! Did an u/s but no evidence of sac, but my level are now 953 still not good just not sureally what to think?

  85. I'm sorry you are all going through this.. I found out I was pregnant on Sunday 8th January, started spotting 10 days later, they booked me in for a scan at exactly 6 weeks to the day from my LMP.. saw something that looked like a growing gestational sac but said that it may just be too early.. took bloods on that Monday, they were 2100.. did the same Wednesday and were looking for them to double, they rose to 2900, ran bloods again on the Friday and they were at 3800.. went back for a scan on the Monday, gestational sac was there, no sign of yolk sac, said GS was measuring 5wk 2 days, bloods weren't looking great so said come back next week.. week later GS still growing but no baby, said likely to be blighted ovum, went back week later, still same thing, growing GS but no yolk sac, had been light spotting all way through, bloating, sore boobs still, ran another blood test HCG were 14000.. they wouldn't confirm MC as GS was 22 and not 25 and HCG levels had gone up but should have been around 35000... 1 day later started to bleed, that was on a Saturday, finally MC on the Tuesday at 9w3 days, devastated... whilst I want to give those experiencing something similar hope, and will pray that you get a different result, if a baby can't be seen in GS by 6/7 weeks, coupled with low rising HCG, then it is time to try to protect your heart because generally it means MC will happen... blighted ovum awful, body is tricked as it hasn't realised baby not there... sorry that your all going through this, it's the most devastating experience I have ever been through, please make sure you have support. ❤️ And baby dust to you all.

  88. My last period was on 4th Jan and I took ovulation test it was positive on 19th and 20th Jan then on 2nd feb it came positive in home pregnancy test kit. So I went to dr on 6th feb for blood test my hcg was 214 so my family dr scheduled my ultrasound on 21st feb there they said I am 5 week 3days pregnant but they couldn't find the heart beat. But on 21st I started taking prega vit pre natals for 8days and I got allergic reactions. So dr asked me to stop taking it and continue with folic acid. From the first day of my pregnancy my hemoglobin was little low it was 118/120-160. So on 3rd march dr advised me another blood test. My hcg on 4th march was 31991. But on 10th march I spotted light brown mucus twice when I wiped tissue paper. Then I immediately call my dr she referred me an urgent ultrasound. There technican told me she was not able to find heart beat and pregnancy because dr was not available that time so I was not satisfied with her words. I went to the emergency and they did the blood test and find out my hcg was decreased from 31991 to 31287 and the dr said I miscarriaged. And ask me to come on 13th march for final process. But I didnt have any pain or cramps no bleeding but still I got a little brownish mucus yesterday night. So today I went to gynaecologist they did my blood work and ultrasound. I convinced myself that its over. But here the surprise came when went to meet gynaecologist for the final report he said my hcg is decreased from 31287 to 24000 still no heart beat but sac was grown from last 3days its kind of confusing so I have to go for another ultrasound next week on 20th march. Now they said decreased hcg and no heart beat is not the confirmation of miscarriage so they want another test. In my 10th macrh ultrasound report says the embryo is 4.1mm but measures less then 6 week size and the sac is 17.7mm equal to 6week 5days.
    I have no idea whats going on everything is so confusing just waiting for next week ultrasound.

  90. I'm concerned that my hcg levels did not double in week 5. Here are my numbers:

    FET on 3/7 (day 5 blast, pgs texted, normal embro, grade A)

    3/16 - 256
    3/20- 1343
    3/21- 2834
    3/29- 5284

    U/s scheduled for 4/5, but I'm going crazy!


    Could this be a sign of mc or eptopic?

  91. Hi, Wondering about my past "miscarriage" last year... Im actually just now seeing each of my full visits from the GYN history...( Would have been first baby btw.. ) anyways, im looking on these reports.. I tried searching this up but not getting what im looking for.. Can someone tell me how would someone have the Gestational Sac visible, Yolk Sac visible, and fetal pole visible on October 12th... then that next visit on October 30th, the yolk sac is NOT visible no more??? P.s - (backtracking here... september 29th, was the day i went in because i took a prego test and said postive, so that days visit says : Gestational Sac Visualized: Yes, Yolk Sac Visualized: Yes
    ,Fetal Pole Visualized: No..) I do not understand all this? Is that normal for on my third visit after all three were visible for the yoke sac to suddenly NOT be visible?? Does the just disappear if you believe you are miscarrying? Are these typos im wondering or what in the world?? Please help me understand this... I quit going to that GYN after all that, and Now im also seeing there seems to be some mixed up information in my charts.. such as my height and weight was a week between each other said : height 5'2 and 142 weight... then one week later its marked me as 5'4 and at 135 pounds. The weight for me was no more than the 135 pounds, i was fluctuating between only 125-135, no more.. I kept going to my PCP plus a home new scale (was checking my weight every single day!) and those two scales never said i weighed that much more (142), Not really the problem though... I have been 5'4 since i became an young adult/ about 18yrs. old or so and have stayed 5'4 (im 32 now) , what im getting at is im starting to suspect a misdiagnosed miscarriage... theres other personal things that are not even about me in these reports... It is late right now and my new GYN is closed and thats why im here, in hopes of an answer or advice, But i am most definitely calling my GYN and possibly others tomorrow to get many professional opinions on this matter... Please help... I was told I was 7 1/2 weeks pregnant BTW, and then told there should have been a heart beat, which one never was seen... a week later was told to come back and that's when it still was no heart beat, but how is all this possible anyways if there was no yoke sac in the third visit after it was there??? Thats when they talked me into the pills .. which gave me GREAT heartache and severe pain (just as if i were giving birth to the baby with out any help or relief) Was a very traumatizing thing... still is.. Thanks for your time and answers... : (

    1. I am so sorry. It is so difficult to know what happened. Generally a week after the baby is visualized, they'll see the heartbeat (if it hasn't been seen already) if the pregnancy is viable. (((hugs)))

  92. I've never done something like this but I'm so confused. So a few weeks ago i took two tests that came back positive... Immediately with no wait. Went to the doctor's a few days later and their urine test came back negative. They sent me to check my hcg. Last monday was 768, went again this Tuesday and it's 760. I was at work yesterday when they called to tell me I was miscarrying. Right after I got off the phone and had just finished telling them I had no cramping or bleeding, I started bleeding. Not a lot but it was there on the tissue when I wiped, still no cramps other than the cramping I already had since I found out. Well the bleeding lasted a couple hours but nothing even on a pad, just when I wiped. It then turned to a brownish colour and I've had nothing since earlier yesterday evening. I braced myself thinking I'd wake up soaked because I've had two previous miscarriages that both ended up like that and very painful. I'm just stressing pretty bad right now. I don't feel pregnant other than my nipples were sensitive but they aren't as much now. Doctor said i would have been between 4 and 6 weeks according to my last period. I have an appt booked for next Wednesday to get the papers to go have an ultrasound and make sure everything passed okay. Maybe this is just the calm before the storm. I don't know anymore. I'm devastated.

    1. I am so sorry you are going through this. Waiting a week is a good idea. You'll have a much better idea of what is happening. Sometimes hCG levels do plateau, drop, and then increase again in a normal pregnancy but, other times, it is a sign of miscarriage. (((hugs))) to you.

    2. I'm in getting another hcg as we speak.. So if it's gone down again, maybe it'll put me at ease.

  93. Hi this is my first time on here & I kinda am having the same issues as the other ladies.
    april 22 I started what I think was my period starting.bled from the 22nd-26th the 26th I passed clots but thought nothing of it because I clot always on my period. Saturday April 29th I started having really bad pelvic pains & started spotting. went the ER april 30 found out I was pregnant & was at risk for miscarriage my hcg levels were at 237 they said I was maybe 4-5weeks nothing showed in ultrasounds.Went back in 48 hours(may 2nd) they were 233...went to the er again a week later may 9th & my levels were at 65 still nothing in ultra sound. went to my ob & had another ultra sound & blood work done may 15th still nothing in ultra sound & my hcg levels came back & were at 7. now almost two weeks later im having all the pregnancy symptoms cravings & nausea & overly exhausted/tired all the time. is it possible im still pregnant?? or my body is just processing that I was pregnant? I go to the doctor Tuesday to get more blood work done..but this is crazy to me. because I had not one single symptom to show I was pregnant or anything.

  94. Hey guys, I've recently fallen pregnant. If I got by my last period I'll be 10 weeks on Wednesday- two days from now but my ultra sound I had a week ago says I'm about 5/6 weeks but alive and then on Friday morning went for blood tests which I didn't find out til today being Monday showed up pregnant as well but later Friday night I had thought about the ultra sound and had another pregnancy test that didn't get up negative but positive either as the second line was very faint I had assumed my hcg levels had gone down I went to a hospital and they told me I had a miscarriage. I today went back to see my doctor and was given my results. Is it possible my hcg levels had dropped enough in those hours to say I had a miscarriage? I also wasn't very hydrated as I had fasted the night before. Is it possible I could just ovulate just before I get my period, I did start having irregular periods over the last two years since trying contraceptives that didn't mix with my body. Is it possible the doctor at the hospital has assumed I'm supposed to be almost 10 weeks along and that my hcg levels weren't high enough and told me I had miscarried ? I had some more blood tests today as my doctor wanted me to just to double check before decisions were made and I find out tomorrow but does anyone have any advice or personal opinions. I'm not trying to get my hopes up as I thought it was quite heartbreaking but to know that my little bean is alive would be great :)

    1. This is too early to diagnose. They should be monitoring from week to week to see if there is any growth in the gestational sac. If there is and the sac is not yet over 25mm, this is too early to diagnose. (((hugs)))

    1. Hi Jamika. You are still early. Keep in mind, sometimes with bleeding and spotting in viable pregnancies, hCG levels will plateau or drop temporarily but then they start rising again. I think if you have a big drop you'll have your answer but, if not, you may have to wait to see what is happening. (((hugs))) and praying for you.

  98. Hi I'm currently going through a similar situation .. on father days June 18th 2017 I woke up and a voice inside of me told me to take a pregnancy test and to my surprise it was positive. In June 30th I had my first appointment and was told I was 7wks along and had scheduled my first us July 11th I was called back a couple days later and was told I had a uti and that my medication was sent to my pharmacy . My us date came and we were expecting to see a baby but I was told there was a gestational sac but no baby and that at 8wks there would at least be a yolk sac and was told that my pregnancy might not be viable .. I was heart broke but went in for my hcg test and was told to come back in 2 days ( July 13th ) for another hcg test ... I went home in tears not knowing what exactly was going on the not knowing is what well wreck your brain .. but during this time I had remembered that my period in April was 2 weeks late and came may 12th - may 18th ( 36 days ) so I became a little hopeful in thinking okay maybe I'm just too early but today I called for my hcg levels and was told that they had went down from 51,xxx to 45,xxx I don't remember too well as to I was heart broke once I heard my levels had gone down... tomorrow I have a ultrasound and I am so nervous but I'm clinging to the fact that I have no bleeding and to the hope that I may just be too early ���� does your hcg levels have to be a certain level before you start bleeding ?

    1. Hi Crystal. I hope you get better news. At this point, levels can start plateauing and then decrease. The most important thing you want to see is growth in the sac. If it has grown and is not yet over 25mm, it is too early to diagnose a blighted ovum. (((hugs)))

  99. Hi Crystal,

    I'm having the same situation as yours. My LMP was on 20/5/17 and tested positive on 18/6/17 (2-3 preggie according to clearblue). Had my first ultrasound on 17/7/17 and was devastated to be informed that my baby is nowhere to be seen. I was frantic and went to different gynaes everyday hoping to find a different answer.

    I had my hcg tested on 20/7 and read as 9954. 2 days later retested at only 9130. My next scan will be 26/7/17 and I'm worried sick.

    How was your results? I feel what you are going through and hope everything is fine...

  104. Hello, I went to the doctor for the first time on 12/8/17. Since I'm a high risk patient my OB started me on the hcg blood test, 12/8 was my first test and it came back at 17,000. Today (12/10) had my second and it dropped to 12,000. Also on my first visit the ultra sound showd a sac which looks to be where it needs to be and not ectopic. I get to do another test in two more days and in four days another test and ultrasound. Also I am a smoker but am getting myself to quit, do you think that smoking may have caused my levels to drop? For today I got worried early on and start smoking again after 4 days of not smoking.
