Falling hcg levels at 9 weeks. Miscarriage?


I had a little bleed on boxing day followed by some spotting for a few days. But no pain or cramping. Went to docs who tested my hcg levels at 9 weeks then back 5 days later for another test.

Had already had scan at 6 weeks and 4 days and all was well with healthy heartbeat.

He told that my levels initially were very good (didn't think to ask what they were) but instead of continuing to rise they had went down a little. This meant he said that I am losing the baby and is arranging scan for Monday to confirm this.

Well after spending most of Friday and Saturday in tears. I looked on google and there appears to a bit a lot of info saying that hcg levels can leak between 9-12 weeks then decline.

Am I clinging onto a shred of hope??? Thanks for reading x

Of course MC is always a possibility b/c they are so common, but your Dr should not scare you like that until you have a scan! It is absolutely normal for HCG to decline a bit at that stage, as they have already peaked. As long as you dont have severe cramping with red blood I say there is still hope! GL and let us know how the scan goes!

HCG levels will decline once the placenta starts taking over. This is normaly 10-11w but can be as early as 9w. They should really be giving you a scan to check onthe growth of the baby as it's too late to judge on HCG alone. Good luck.

Hope everything turns out okay, I didn't want to read and run. The chance of miscarriage decreases after hearing the heartbeat so heres hoping.

Take care of yourself and rest lots

Thanks ladies for all your kind words.

Well all is fine. bubba is measuring 10 weeks and 2 days and gave us a little wave. It was really amazing!

Def going to be changing doctors, will never believe a word that he says now. Looking forward to a good sleep tonight

Fab news, I bet you are over the moon
Doctors need to think about what they say before they speak, they dont realise the impact they have when we leave the surgery!!

So glad all is well
