Thanks for the query.
According to your last menstrual period, your gestational age is more than 9 weeks.
Usually by 7 completed weeks it self cardiac activity should be seen.
So in case of accurate dates better to terminate the pregnancy.
If the dates are not accurate you can wait for one more week as told by the second doctor.
Take care.
