In brief: Wait, repeat sono

wait, do not rush.
Since you have irregular periods wait . Do bhcg quantitative and progesterone levels.Repeat sono in 2 weeks and correlate.

In brief: There is data

There is data that suggests if you are having a miscarriage than the best thing to do is have a d;c rather than wait if your doctor confirms the pregnancy is not viable.
By 5 weeks a heartbeat is often detected. Good luck.
