Thanks for the query.
Usually by 7 weeks fetal pole and cardiac activity should be seen.
But as there was 2 weeks lag in the development and also there is no fetal heart beat there is possibility of blighted ovum.
Means gestational sac will develop without fetal pole.
So you wait for one more week, if there is no heart beat even after that better to to terminate the pregnancy.
Take care.
