Thanks for posting your query.
The discrepancy of 1 week on the ultrasound scan can be due to a delayed conception. The presence of yolk sac is suggestive of a viable fetus. A low implantation suggests the position where the sac has been attached in the uterine cavity.
A fetal node will appear by next week. Do get a follow up scan done after 10 days to detect a cardiac activity. The findings of this scan are not suggestive of a miscarriage.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Thanks for writing again.
I think you have mentioned the size of the sac. This corresponds to 5-6 weeks gestation. A follow up scan will help in determining the rate of growth.
Hope my answer is helpful.
