Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

A falling HCG level will indicate definite miscarriage. The levels are pretty high now. You have to get this tested again and see if the levels are going down. A rising level would be a good sign. Also there is no frank bleeding yet. So chances of retaining are also there.

Its 50-50 chance either way. Please discuss with your gynecologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
