    my daughter was 6 wks pregnant and had been bleeding the whole time and the ob said that the bleeding was ok. when she got to 6 and a half wks she started bleedig a little bit more and had some cramping in her stomache. she went to an urgent care type place and they told her that her hcg levels had dropped from 2700 to 1800. they told her that they hcg levels can not go back up and that she was losing the baby. they gave her diloten in her iv for the pain after she told them she wasnt hurting that bad for pain meds, they told her she would start hurtingand need it. they sent her home and told her that the hcg will not go back up, my question is: is it possible for the hcg levels to go back up and her really not be losig the baby

    well i was told the same thing basically when i was first pregnant, my doctor even looked at me like i was stupid when i made a 2nd appointment to see if i was or was not pregnant because he said my levels were so low he thought i miscarried and that the symptoms/remaining levels were just left over from the miscarriage, i didnt feel any real bad pain though. u demanded an ultrasound and sure enough my baby was alive and doing fine. i was then put on some kind of medication progesterone which helped bring my levels up to normal. im now 26 weeks pregnant and fine so far. so i mean all i can suggest to do is to keep an eye out on the bleeding...if its so bad then i wouldnt get my hopes up on keeping the baby. my bleeding wasnt HORRIBLE and stopped after a few days. the pain i was experiencing ended up being a bad ovarian cyst, but i know at 10 weeks you can see the baby so once she reaches that if you guys still expect she may still be pregnant id go to a doctor and tell them you want an ultrasound to confirm what may or may not be there
