Possible blighted ovum

Today I went in for my first US at what I swear to be 7 weeks and 6 days. I was regular with my period, tracking my ovulation, and know the first day of my last period. I have a 5 year old and prior to pregnancy with him I had a blighted ovum and had to have a D & C. Today I was so anxious and sure enough they do the US and we see a gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole. I was also told I was measuring 6 weeks and some days. I am trying so hard to stay hopeful, but I can't help but to feel a loss. They did not check my hCg level, and scheduled me for a follow-up US in 1 week.

    Stay strong, according to my app I'm 7 wks and 6 days but yesterday in the Er they only saw the yolk sac and no fetus and my hcg level are low. They told me it could be I'm early. The waiting is hard, I go see the Dr. Wed. Stay positive, is all we can do at this point.
