Early USG scan (abdominal) may not reveal detailed view about fetal pole or cardiac activity. Basically it is seen around 7-8 wks in case of USG scan and around 6 wks on TVS scan. So it is better to undergo one TVS scan for confirmation of fetal viability. Otherwise it may turn to miscarriage due to blighted ovum. Further consultation with gynecologist is needed.
Take folic acid supplements, protein rich diet, avoid long journey/heavy work, maintain personal hygiene, take adequate rest. Be well and take care.
