    Default Miscarriage: HCG levels drop off, then rise again?

    Just after anyone who might have had a similar experience.

    I am currently going through my 2nd miscarriage (5weeks) and went to ED on Saturday with right sided pain and bleeding, under advice from my GP as there had been some fluid seen near my right tube on a scan.
    Saturday's blood tests had shown my HCG the same level as the previous day's test (30) and the GYN had deemed it a pregnancy of unknown location and I had to come back for bloods on Monday (48hrs later) for repeat bloods.
    Bloods were done yesterday and they called me back at lunch time and told me my levels had risen to 78 (so they've actually doubled). They said they would send me out a form for repeat bloods in a week (Monday).

    I'm sort of freaking that my levels have gone up again even though I'm bleeding quite a bit (pain has eased off though so I'm alright about that for now).

    So my question is: For anyone who's been through something similar, what was the outcome?

    That's what I am afraid of. How many weeks were you? (if you don't mind me asking).

    I found out for sure around 9 weeks but had my suspicions around 8.

    *Update*
    I returned to ED yesterday after the pain returned and I was still bleeding a fair bit. After an internal, another scan and bloods (levels had dropped from 78 to 60 in 48 hours). The ob/gyn was fairly certain it wasn't ectopic and recommended a d&c due to the amount of bleeding I'd been experiencing. So I agreed and was admitted overnight and the procedure was done this morning.
    So freaking glad the whole ordeal is finally over, I feel I can finally grieve properly. Physically I am feeling a bit sore but that is to be expected.
