Hi - firstly i wanted to say i feel your anxiety. this is a really tough time and i have only just gone through the exact same thing. i had no miscarriage symptoms (like you) and just felt something was up. my levels were rising slowly and very low and then they started dropping from around 500.
You need to be seen and have an internal ultrasound, this is the best way to see how things are going or not going and will save you weeks of heartache and wondering.
I have read loads of positive stories about people who have had low rising HCG levels (mine started dropping so there was no hope), so you never know what may happen, but the best thing is to know early so you can prepare yourself and not have to wait thinking you have a healthy pregnancy and then finding out weeks down the track that little bean stopped growing.
Stay strong, if this one does not stick it was not meant to. I have a beautiful healthy 9 month old baby boy and am a strong believer after 2 miscarriages (one only a couple of weeks ago) that when they are right... they are perfect... when they are not, a little angel takes them for us. Let us know how you get on and best wishes for positive or speedy outcome. xx
