hi this week i found out i was pregnant but 2 days before i got bleeding and didnt suspect a pregnancy. only had test cause i was sick and they decided to do one anyway!!

so today i had some spotting and went to hospital and they did blood test and it came back with lower hcg. no more spotting since.
anyone had this and still had successful pregnancy?  sad.gif
will i bleed now?

sorry i posted this in TTC as well thought maybe it should go here instead.

Im  sorry you are going thru  this.   When Ive had low hcg and  spotting  it ended in m/c, Ive had complete mc, and other times (past 6 weeks)   needed a d&c.    I have heard of hcg levels tapering off,  then rising again,  when one of twins is lost early,  but not when levels are falling.   sad.gif   Somtimes for me,  the bleeding didnt start for a few days after hcg levels dropped.  Depending how far along you are,  it may be worth getting a u/s,  as sometimes you can mc,  but your body doesnt respond,  and so you get no more than mild spotting.

All the best
