Yolk dating

Im confused because i got my bfp on 31/10 (very faint but still a line) so even if i did ovulate late and im only 5/6 weeks, shouldnt i have seen something by now? My return appt isnt until 14th dec and i feel like im in no mans land.

Ive had no bleeding and theres no real reason to believe this pregnancy isnt progressing but im worried if im too positive i will find myself crushed at the next u/s.

Thus, a simple way to "date" an early pregnancy is to add the length of the fetus (in mm) to 6 weeks.

Using this method, a fetal pole measuring 5 mm would have a gestational age of 6 weeks and 5 days.5mm from the inner to inner diameter.

So this is my first time posting and im looking for some advice.

So yesterday i had my first u/s as id been having a few pains and they diagnosed a uti.

At my appointment with my dr there was only the sac and no baby. Praying everything keeps going well and this will be our rainbow baby. Don't have a midwife or ob yet but my regular doc sent me to have blood test for hormone level and for an ultrasound. Have to wait for my regular doctor to get the results to tell me. Husband is more positive saying just wait for the doc but there's nothing wrong. Yes it torture I think I'm going to call and see if we can move it up before Christmas. Im going through stages of feeling really positive and really low, its an emotional ride! I had an us at 6 weeks, and was measured as 6 w 3 d, and there was no fetal pole. I felt pregnant, but honestly, my symptoms were mild compared to how I normally am in pregnancy. My OB drew blood at 8w and my hcg was at 33k, so my body hasn't recognized the loss yet.

A mass of fetal cells, separate from the yolk sac, first becomes apparent on transvaginal ultrasound just after the 6th week of gestation. The fetal pole grows at a rate of about 1 mm a day, starting at the 6th week of gestational age.

Has anyone had experience with this and it all turned out okay?

Thanx in advance and im sorry for the long post :)I don't want to post anything negative & get your hopes down, so I won't share my past experience with this.

Just to check all is well they did a transvaginal u/s but all they could see was a gestational sac and yolk sac.

Dating my preganacy from my lmp on the 5/10 i should be 8 weeks 2 days.
