  • I'm sorry I would think she would miscarry again. That is a signficant drop...are they retesting her?? I have lost two babies to early miscarriage and I am so sorry that she has as well. Have her insist on being checked again to be sure and also have her check her progesterone levels. I hope things work out for your friend.

  • That sounds like either a testing error or a miscarriage. hCG levels roughly double every day that a woman is pregnant, and 27 is the level you would find in a woman who is about 4-5 weeks pregnant. I would recommend she get retested, because she would likely have started bleeding by now if she was having a miscarriage. Give her my best!
