My HCG levels are going down...what's going to happen?!?


I was told by a doctor in an ER that my HCG levels were going down and that my pregnancy wasn't going to last through the weekend (I was told this on Thursday April 12,2012)...it is now Monday April 16,2012. Should I be worried?!? Should I ask for hormones and bed rest?!? Has anyone gone through this?!? This is my first pregnancy and my mom has no clue how to help (despite her three pregnancies) except turning to God. I would like to know what I can do and if what the doctor said could be wrong in any way, shape, or form.
Thank you for your time.

I've been told I'm 5 weeks (now 6 weeks) the levels were 4415 and then dropped to 3991...last night I took a pregnancy test to be on the safe side and found out I'm still pregnant on the home-testing level

Are you having any cramping or bleeding? I would get another blood test. I *think* hcg can drop sometimes and rise back up.. but I'm not sure about that. HCG can be tricky. Are you getting an ultrasound anytime soon? Hope you're doing okay xx

So I just did some googling, and I totally forgot about the vanishing twin theory. Do identical twins run in your family? Even if they don't, that could be the reason why they dropped.. I also found this success story

Twins apparently do run in my family but don't last long from what my mom told me. yeah I've been cramping and bleeding but the bleeding and cramping is going away now... getting really excited that this is all going down not a hcg levels though. I've gotten two ultrasounds but they're both the same. they say that everything is normal.

Worst thing ever just happened...on too of cramping and bleeding I just passed a clot that I've been told was part of my walls...reminds me of a period a 100% real undeniable period...my mom has confined me to my room and told me not to walk much, aka I'm on bed rest until I can call my doctor tomorrow...I don't trust the ER doctors anymore. Wish me luck...I'll keep this thread as updated as possible!!! God forbid another woman goes through this...this is what is happening to me :'( Got To Go...will be back with an update soon.

I'm sorry to hear about the symptoms you're having. It sounds as if you have miscarried your baby. I wish you well on saying goodbye to this baby and welcoming a new baby into your life. Hopefully a new baby comes into your life quickly.
