Thanks for the query.
The possibilities are:
Wrong dates, in this case you can wait for two more weeks possibly by that time the fetal pole and heart rate can be seen.
In case of correct dates, as fetal pole is not visible there is possibility of blighted ovum.
So possibly in your next scan the actual gestational age and condition of the fetus can be made out.
Take care.
