Brief Answer: Yes. At 7 weeks. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. At 5 weeks 4 days pregnancy the ultrasound report that you have mentioned is normal. It is normal not to see a fetus at this time. Since the yolk sac and trophoblast are normal there is no need to worry. It is likely to be a viable pregnancy. You will be able to see the heartbeat on your next scan by 7 weeks. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer: The dose is sufficient. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for writing again. The change in bowel habits is normal during pregnancy. The mild diarrhea will gradually improve on its own. She can increase her fluid intake and take a nutritious diet. The dosage of Progesterone is alright. There is no need to double the dosage due to twins. This is only to supplement the natural progesterone that is secreted in the body during pregnancy. As per her dates she is now 5 weeks 6 days pregnant. You need to wait for at least 10 days to get a repeat scan done to detect a heart beat. Hope my answer is helpful. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health. Regards
