The gestation sac usually grows at the rate of 1mm. per day in the early weeks. Decreased growth, failure to locate a fetal pole even after 7-8 weeks even by trans-vaginal sonography, and absence of yolk sac go in favor of a missed abortion which needs to be evacuated. To diagnose this, sonographic findings should be corroborated with physical features as well as hormonal levels. The ultrasound may have to be repeated again after another week as sometimes findings suddenly improve in later weeks. I advice you to see a gynecologist before you decide anything and take an opinion. Good luck.

Welcome to HCM.
You are now carrying 5-6 wks pregnancy. In this stage,USG scan only reveals gestational sac and nothing else.
Later scan ie.after 2-4 wks you can see fetal pole,detect fetal heart beat and over all fetal profile.
So you have to wait few wks to get over all fetal profile.
For fetal development &well being,you have to take FOLIC ACID,VITAMIN &CALCIUM Supplements and high protein diet.
If there is any abnormal thing is detected in your fetal profile like no fetal pole, no or low FHB,then consult with your doctor for further treatment like removing or emptying uterine cavity.
Be well and tc.
