Hard to know: Early ultrasound in pregnancy can sometimes be inaccurate because a fetal pole needs to be big enough for the ultrasound technology to pick up. Typically we expect the gestational sac to grow between ultrasounds and the development of a fetal pole over time as well. No development of fetal pole could indicate very early pregnancy or blighted ovum
