HCG levels normally start declining at 9 weeks or so. HCG peaks at around 100,000 and then decline to about 20,000 for the duration of pregnancy. A decline at 8 weeks could be normal.

Low HCG at 4 Weeks: Hi! This is my second pregnancy. I miscarried at Christmas and now I'm pregnant again after our third IUI. I went for my blood test at two weeks post-ovulation at my HCG was just over 30. The nurse said that's low, but that can sometimes happen with IUI. I have to go for another blood test tomorrow to see if my levels are doubling.
