Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. The gestational sac would have developed fetal pole with heart beat by now.

2. The chances of pregnancy being healthy after this is difficult.

3. Get transvaginal ultrasound scan repeated next week to confirm development.

Brief Answer:
repeat

Detailed Answer:
Hi

The possibility of heart beat appearing after now is low.

Beta hCG levels should double every 48 hours if pregnancy is healthy.

The common cause of such pregnancy is chromosomal abnormalities.
