Thanks for your query
At a gestational sac more than 2 cm, a fetal le should ideally be seen.
Weeks of pregnancy are calculated based on date of last menstrual period, and not the date of conception/ ovulation, so you might be confused.
Please consult your obstetrician as it appears to be a non viable pregnancy, however there might be a possibility of delayed conception
Take care
