Drop in hcg

Postby babydust530 » Tue Apr 21, 2015 9:02 am

I just found out my hcg dropped from 128,000 (last month) to 88,000 (11 weeks). I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant and wondering if this drop is normal or a sign of a pending miscarriage.
My doctor says that "it's not unsual" but I won't have confirmation until my u/s. Anyone experience this?

I think it's normal. The levels are starting to drop around the 8th - 9th week.
That's what all HCG charts are indicating.
I think your doc could/should have been more reassuring.

Thank you Liz for your reassuring words. I have a sonogram later today to check and see if everything is okay. I'm a complete ball of nerves and just trying to think positive.

I also read that it is normal for the HCG to begin dropping around the end of the first trimester. I would have worried too though with the answer you received from the doctor. I'm sure the ultrasound will ease your worries. Keep us posted on how you make out :)

Thanks ladies!
Update: U/S went great! Baby is actually measuring 2 weeks ahead. Strong hb of 161! Doctor came in and looked at the u/s and said everything is fine and the drop in HCG is normal. I'm so beyond relieved! :)
