It could be that you are earlier than you think, or there could be a problem. It depends whether the fetus was clearly seen and measured 7-8 weeks and also what your HCG levels are.

I would advise make an appointment asap, if there is no heart beat ask for an Internal Scan. The worry and wondering is gonna make you crazy

Hi there
By 7-8 weeks you should be able to see a clear heartbeat but maybe his got an old ultra sound machine or maybe you should go see another gynae for a second opinion... i know how you feeling it''s nerve wrecking, you wanna know now what''s happening not in 2 weeks time! but please try not to stress too much and take it easy. Good luck.
