Possibly : Your hCG will continue to be positive but if it is declining it is a sign of a miscarriage. You should check with your doctor to see if your levels are declining. If they are increasing, it is possible that you were too early to see a heartbeat. ...Read more

Hcg is 9 went to ER im not due to start til august 1. Does this number sound normal..Hpt says positive.Is it possible im pregnant an really early?
