I think you should wait and do another ultrasound in 10 days. Normally from this time if the fetus is still viable, growth will progress normally and you will keep seeing pregnancy changes. But if no viability, then your pregnancy will be halted (missed abortion) and you could expel spontaneously or be assisted with a D&C.
Chances of your baby to be viable are still there as many early done pelvic sonography can always come up with absence of fetal heart beat. Just exercise a little patience for your pregnancy to evolve a little so another ultrasound could be conducted by your gynobs.

Thank you and hope this helps
