US for early pregnancy showed 6 weeks, empty sac. Why is it showing 6 weeks without sac?

So I went to the doctor on 11-29-12 and based on the u/s I was 6weeks. On that visit they told me there was no baby or yolk, there was just an empty sac. On 10-17-12 I found out I was 3weeks.. So on 11-29-12 I would have been 10 weeks I thought.. Sence the doc said there wasn t a baby in there is that why the sac is measuring 6 weeks? What s going on.. I m just so confused.. This will be my second child I m just praying everything will turn-out ok. I just praying for a healthy baby. Should I get a second opinion?

Thank you for putting up your problem to Healthcare Magic!
In normal intrauterine pregnancy fetus develops cardiac activity at 6-8 weeks.
However you are having empty sac means no fetus no cardiac activity that is known as blighted ovum.
In bitter but real words I would like to say that you are having failed pregnancy.
You need to start the treatment after consulting your gynecologist.
I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you.
