Obgyn evaluation: Your Obgyn will need to interpret the sonogram for you. We can not make a specific diagnosis such as this on Healthtap . In general if a fetal pole is seen in a gestational sac that large and there is no heartbeat then this would indicate a miscarriage. Please follow up with your Obgyn to discuss your specific case.
