3 doctors agree

In brief: Yes.

Should have baby with good heartbeat.
Heartbeats are always seen at 6 weeks. This is a miscarriage, technically called a missed abortion.

In brief: Need to clarify

You need to contact the doctor who did your ultrasound to clarify the findings and the plan of care.
If the gestational sac was truly 9 week size and no baby was seen then this sounds like a blighted ovum (miscarriage). You need to confirm with your doctor and determine if a D and C surgery is needed.
