No: If your HCG levels are 87, 000 and you can not see fetal pole this is definitely not a normal pregnancy. We call this a blighted ovum. See your doctor for follow up ultrasound. Typically this second ultrasound you get is used to confirm the diagnosis. Then your doctor will discuss with you your options.
