Pregnancy Hcg Levels And Xtra Sac

So I'm sure there are many people out there who have been completely stressed out by hcg levels that seem to not be "normal."
About 2 weeks ago I went into the ER with heavy bleeding and fluid. I had no cramps just really bad back pain. MY husband and I thought we were doomed and for sure this was a miscarriage. I have 2 small children and my very first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. The dr had an ultrasound taken and they found a healthy heartbeat with nothing unusual. I was 7wks when this occured. In the last 2 weeks we have been through so much anxiety, stress and heartache due to my hcg levels. At the ER they were 62,800 then 3 days later 90,000 then 2 days later 85,000 then 2 days later 68,000(then 9 weeks). Iwas then scheduled for an emergency ultrasound and had a radiologist called in to examine my ultrasound. My baby had grown to exactly the right week and had a heartbeat of 178. My dr had said before I went in if this is going to be a miscarriage there is nothing we can do about it, it's going to happen no matter what. So the radiologist told us there was a sac with a living pregnancy and another sac connected to my baby's sac full of blood. The sac with the blood was 4 inches long and the baby's sac was 2 inches. They are now concerned that this will overtake the baby and I will lose the pregnancy. I'm being sent to a specialist. Now we are just waiting to find out what can be done about this. Has anybody heard of this before? I've never felt such sadness in my whole life!
I don't believe in HCG levels being taken. They are just a big stress and have proven in my case to not end in a miscarriage(at least as of now). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Crying or Very sad Mandy
