10weeks pregnant but sono and recorded 7weeks and no fetal heartbeat and its motionless also hCG hormone level dropped can it be a miscarriage?

Yes: I'm sorry, but miscarriage sounds like a strong possibility if the size of the embryo is smaller than how far along you think you are, and also if there's no heartbeat.

Unlikely: There is some evidence that getting pregnant too soon after a miscarriage can increase your risk of a repeat miscarriage. At a minimum you should wait until you have your first period. It might be better to wait a couple of months to give your body a chance to heal. It would be unlikely that you would get pregnant 2 weeks after a miscarriage. ...Read more

How quickly can your hCG levels drop after a miscarriage?
