Possible: It is always possible that there was a problem with the second test but this is unlikely and a falling HCG level generally means the pregnancy has failed/the embryo has died.This is not usually due to a uterus didelphys which usually causes complications later in the pregnancy if it causes problems.A septate uterus can fail early if implantation is on the septum and doesn't get a good blood supply

See below: Hcg declines much slower than it increases because there are still cells that secrete it. In healthy pregnancies, the HCG doubles every 2.2 days.
