Q: Different dates from US dropping HCG levels

Help ladies, I don't know what's going on... Hopefully will hear from my doctor on Monday.
My last period started 4/30/18 and on 5/30/18 I took a pregnancy test and it was positive, two pregnancy tests after were still positive. Made an appointment at a local place like planed parenthood to get my pregnancy confirmed so I could get WIC and they did an ultrasound 6/20/18 and it only showed the gestational sac that measured 5w5d at that time by LMP I was 7w2d, they wanted a repeat scan two weeks later so on 7/2/18 I had another ultrasound done and the yolk sac and baby were visible, but only measured 6w3d. So in a two week period I only had 5 days of growth by their calculations. I told my primary doctor about this and she ordered me to have a beta hcg test done yesterday and one today. 7/5 my hcg levels were 49,607 and today 7/7 they were 47,208. So they're dropping, I'm not sure what to think. By LMP I should be 9w5d, 1st scan I'd be 8w1d, 2nd scan I'd be 7w0d...

It's sounds like this pregnancy has had a difficult time from the get go. I'm not a Dr., but anytime HCG is decreasing there is cause for concern. I do wish you the best and pray for a good outcome. :-)
