Thanks for writing to us.

Dark brown discharge does not always mean miscarriage. In your case the hcg levels are good and are not suggestive of any miscarriage. The more likely cause of brownish discharge is a low lying placenta. You need to have an ultrasound scan to know further. Till you get a medical aid, it is best to have a bed rest and avoid any work.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
