Annie - I got the same news today, only I'm a bit further along, 7 weeks. My level went from 38,000 to 36,000. So, I have the same question - does a drop in hcg always mean a miscarriage?

I believe the hcg levels normally drop at around 12 weeks when the placenta takes over hormone production, until that point they're supposed to double every 2 -3 days. During my last pregnancy my numbers danced around for 7 weeks and it turned out to be ectopic. My numbers were much lower than yours though, they peaked at 1000. I'm also 7 weeks pregnant but bleeding at the moment and having a scan this morning. Good luck ladies. Becky.
