41 year old pregnant got the ultrasound report saying gestational sac and yolk sac, no pole sac found. What does it mean?

Hello, My name is Lisa. I am 41 years old and pregnant for the first time. Last Wednesday I had my first ultrasound at 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant and it only showed the gestational sac and yolk sac. No pole sac was detected. What does this mean? My doctor is going to repeat the sonogram again this week, but I am nervous and just looking for some input. Best regards

You are elderly primi gravida and carrying pregnancy of 6 wk plus as on USG.
Early scan may not reveal detail of FPP and need to wait at least 2 wk for repeat scan to get details with fetal heart beat and pole. May undergo TVS (Trans Vaginal Sonography) to get early details than TAS (Trans abdominal sonography). On TVS, you get details of fetal pole/cardiac activity around 6 wk gestational age. So consult with your doctor for suggestive measure.
Continue folic acid supplements,protein rich diet,avoid long journey/heavy work,maintain personal hygiene,take adequate rest.
Be well.
