Vaginal ultrasound, 9mm sac, 6 Weeks pregnant

My pregnancy ultrasound today vaginal , found a 9mm sac and nothing else. tomorrow I will be four weeks post ovulation , but the dr calculated I am over 6 weeks pregnant according to my last period on 21st march. I ovulated late that cycle adn I know it was either 6th or 7th april. Is it to early for the scan and that s why nothing much was seen except this small black thing on the screen? He was not a sonographer but an obstetricitan, is that why he didnt enlarge this image to check for yolk sac? or would the yolk sac have been visible anyway? I m rather worried! what should I do next?

Thanks for writing to us.
At 6 weeks, a sac with yolk sca is seen. Fetal node and cardiac activity is visible in some cases. It is best to go for a repeat scan from a radiologist to have complete and deatiled findings recorded. The operiod of gestation is calculated from the last menbstrual period and not from ovulation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
