Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

As defined in Wikipedia, gestational sac(GS) is the only available intrauterine structure that can be used to determine if an intrauterine pregnancy (IUP) exists, until the embryo is identified. The gestational sac first appears at about 4 weeks gestational age, and grows at a rate of about 1 mm a day through the 9th week of pregnancy.

However much more important is the appearance of the yolk sac in the gestational sac. The accuracy of dating pregnancy by a gestational sac is low and one should refer to the appearance of yolk sac and fetal crown-rump length; wherever possible for dating a pregnancy. You should get a repeat ultrasound done after 10 days and look out for gestational sac and yolk sac. Sometimes early ultrasounds may miss the same.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
