General & Family Physician 's  Response
The gestational sac is the earliest sonographic finding in pregnancy. The gestational sac appears as an  ring surrounding a clear center. The gestational sac  is an ultrasonic finding characteristic of early pregnancy. 

The gestational sac first appears at about 4 weeks gestational age, and grows at a rate of about 1 mm a day through the 9th week of pregnancy. 

As the pregnancy advances, the next structure to become visible to ultrasound is the yolk sac. This is a round, sonolucent structure with a bright rim. 

The yolk sac first appears during the fifth week of pregnancy and grows to be no larger than 6 mm.  Failure to identify  a yolk sac when the gestational sac has grown to 12 mm is also usually indicative of a failed pregnancy.
Absence of yolk sac along with absence of beta HCG denotes a failed pregnancy.

Consult your doctor for further advise and management.
