Is a yolk sac a good sign for a viable pregnancy? Could we see a yolk sac when its a blighted ovum?

Usually good. A yolk sac is an early sign that usually is a good predictor. However, just like anything in medicine, nothing is 100% so a follow-up ultrasound in about a week should be done as you should be able to see a fetal pole and a heartbeat around 6 and a half weeks.
