Hi Saadia,
Thanks for writing in.
If your cycles were regular prior to this pregnancy then you should be almost 12 weeks pregnant now, but scan shows a 7 weeks pregnancy without a fetal pole. These findings are in favor of a failing pregnancy or missed miscarriage.
I suggest you should go for a blood pregnancy test ( beta hCG ). This will give a more reliable clue towards the fate of this pregnancy.
High blood sugars at this stage of pregnancy indicate a previously undiagnosed diabetes. This is not good to have high sugars in early pregnancy as there is an association with birth defects. You should consult a physician & an obstetrician for sugar & blood pressure control. High blood pressure is also associated with many pregnancy complications like miscarriage & growth restriction.
Take care.
