Hi Udupa,
Thanks for posting your query.
In early pregnancy, first thing to appear is gestational sac followed by fetal node between 5-6 weeks & cardiac activity appears at 6-7 weeks.All of these are stages of organogenesis of fetus.
So wait for two weeks as advised by your doctor & get a repeat ultrasound scan done after that.
Thank you.

Welcome to HCM.
You have missed period of 2 months and last scan shows that early intrauterine gestational sac without fetal node and about to 5-6 wks pregnancy.
At this stage USG scan only rule out Gestational Sac and nothing more about fetal profile. So you have to wait an other 2-4 wks to get detailed feto-placental profile.
In this time, you take Folic acid and vitamin supplements for better well being of fetus.
So don't be much tensed,take healthy diet, adequate sleep and avoid heavy work & stress.
Be well.
