I had an ultersound done 1/22/2014 there was a gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole. I"m 8 weeks 2 days. Do I need to have a D&C?

Maybe. By 8 weeks 2 days you expect to see a heart beat on ultrasound. It is possible that you are not as far along as you think or that this is a blighted ovum/missed miscarriage. To be sure you can check quantitaive HCG's and look for the appropriate doubling or do a repeat ultrasound in 1 week. Remember that this sort of thing is not because of something you did or didn't do. Hope this helps. Read more...

Went for 2nd ultrasound at 8 weeks this time was able to detect fetal pole yolk sac and gestational sac but still no heartbeat not sure why?
