Ultrasound resulted gestation, but no heartbeat seen. Collapses yolk sac. Is there a chance to get pregnant?

I just had an u/s which showed 6 week 3 day gestation but no heartbeat could be seen and it states thereby be a collapsed yolk sac. Is there still a chance the pregnancy is viable?? I still have sore breasts, nausea, headaches and tiredness. I should be 8 weeks based on my lmp but I only measure @ 6.3. Is this normal??

As there is clear discrepancy between your dates and the ultrasound findings; moreover with an absence of the fetal heart and a collapsed yolk sac, it is more likely that you have miscarried. Pregnancy symptoms do persist for sometime even after a miscarriage as the hCG levels take some time to come down. A repeat sonogram, preferably in the trans-vaginal route coupled with serial serum beta-hCG titres, can be conclusive. Hope your query is answered. Take care.
