Is a HCG level of 46600 at 5weeks 2 days considered high? Does a drop in HCG always mean impending miscarriage?

Yes although the normal range for qHCG levels can vary enormously. It is normal for qHCG levels to increase to about 100000 i u at 10-11 weeks and then settle to 20000 i u for the rest of the pregnancy. This is often correlated with 'morning sickness'. Earlier in pregnancy, say at 7 weeks, a drop in the qHCG level is not reassuring!
