Hello,

Here, you need to undergo one TVS scan with blood work out for beta-hCG to get definite result.

With abdominal ultrasound, fetal pole and heart beat are usually obtained around 7-8 weeks. Therefore, repeat test is advisable after 1-2 weeks.

Take complete bed rest with folic acid supplements. You may require micronised progesterone to preserve pregnancy. Please consult with gynecologist regarding this.

Good luck.
