Thanks for your query.
At 9 weeks of pregnancy, with a fetal pole of 8 mm and a gestational sac of 27 mm, tlhere should definitely be evidence of heartbeat within the fetus.
As that is not the case, sadly, you have to go for termination as advised by your doctor.
There is no doubt about it.
You should also send the products of abortion for chromosomal analysis.
Also, get yourself thoroughly investigated by a Fetal Medicine Specialist for cause of recurring abortions.
Take care.
