If I have low hCG levels, does that mean I am going to have a miscarriage?

In brief: No

Hcg alone cannot tell one they are going to miscarry.
In early pregnancy the HCG should double every 2-3 days. If it is falling, or is not rising substantially over time, it is likely that there is a problem with the pregnancy (impending or current miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy). Once there is a visible pregnancy on ultrasound, hcgs have little value, and the ultrasound is more meaningful.

Hello. Your doctor is probably up on this case.
However, as long as you are feeling fine and going for regular visits. I am not skilled on the exact levels needed for the average person. Share your thoughts with your doctor, esp lab work.
