Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I can understand your concern.
Usually by 6 weeks of gestational age, gestational sac can be seen in trans abdominal ultrasound and fetal heart can be seen by around 7 weeks.
As your ultrasound showing 6 weeks only, there is possibility of wrong dates sometimes.
In that case, you better to wait for one week to ten days and repeat the ultrasound.
In case of wrong dates, by that time at least fetal pole can be seen.
If fetal pole is also absent by that time, there is possibility of of blighted ovum, means development of empty gestational sac without fetus.
So, please go for repeat ultrasound examination as explained with your doctor's advice and proceed accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question and I will be happy to answer any further follow up questions.
Take care.

I had an ultrasound and received the following report. i would like to know what it means as I haven t seen by OB/GYN yet. My LMP was 31/1/15 (EDC 7/11/15). There is a single, viable intrauterine pregnancy. Foetal heart is positive measuring 168bpm. There is a yolk sac. Foetal pole measures 16mm = 8 weeks. Mean sac diameter is 24mm = 7 weeks 3 days. Both adnexa outline normally. There is a small bleed along the fundal aspect of the yolk sac measuring 17mm by length and 2mm by depth. Follow-up examination throughout the pregnancy is suggested. Does this mean I should rest, and abstain from normal activities, or not? What is the risk of miscarriage. I am 37 and this is my fifth pregnancy (three carried to term, one miscarried at 5 weeks in September 2014).
