i’m 8 weeks pregnant (estimated). my hcg tested 31194 and then 29587 two days later. my doc said this is normal, as the fluctuation was so small. am i potentially miscarrying? i have no miscarriage symptoms.

HCG level: There is a plateau reached , and variation in HCG can be secondary to a lab error . If you have bleeding, see your OB provider for an ultrasound. At eight weeks, the ovary stops progesterone production, and if the placenta does not make the equivalent amount of progesterone at that time, you might see fluctuations in the HCG level, but this is soon corrected.
