Thanks for writing to us.
At 5 weeks, the heart beat is not sometimes visible. Doubling of hcg levels after 48 hours is confirmatory of a viable pregnancy. Presence of a yolk sac on ultrasound also goes in favor of a viable pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
