Hcg levels dropped from 3200 to 2900

Hi,
I am 6 weeks 5 days pregnant. My Hcg level was 400 at the end of week 4. Went for an ultrasound week 6, they could only find a small gestational sac through abdominal ultrasound. Same day my Hcg level was 3200. 3 days later my Hcg dropped to 2900. I saw my doctor who thinks that this means an impending miscarriage. Although, just to be sure he ordered another blood Hcg at the end of week 7. I have been experiencing some mild abdominal cramps, no bleeding, breast soreness, heartburn. Earlier on from weeks 4-5 I did experience a lot of dizziness and sleepiness, and water retention in my legs which seem to have controlled now.

Is there a chance that my Hcg levels could go back up and what should I interpret from all this? please help.

Slow rising HCG levels or decreasing HCG levels is an ominous sign.  I hope you have a good outcome but you should be prepared for the worst.
