5 wks. 4 days pregnant. Vaginal ultrasound showed small gestational sac and yolk sac, but could not see embryo? Is this normal? Yolk sac a good sign?

In brief: Yes

The yolk sac normally shows up first(before the embryo) on ultrasound at about this time.
If all is well, embryo should become visible within a week or so.
