Did you see the yolk sac?
My 5w4d showed only a sac, no yolk sac, no fetal pole and I panicked. A week later I had two babies and two heartbeats. Sadly I lost a twin but I am still cooking a healthy baby that is 18 weeks. I think your chances are fine, you were early, good luck! Tough not to panic - I did. But yes, it could be perfectly fine!

I understand your anxiety. My first u/s was Monday, I was 6wks 1day. You could see the sac, but no heartbeat. They are repeating my u/s tomorrow. They are hoping that I was just a late implanter since I was a 3 day transfer. They told me the same thing... 50/50. Which doesnt help at all!

I don't know about what the HCG numbers should be I never got them that far along. Again, all I saw was a sac, empty and I freaked. A week later there were 2 heartbeats so yes there is hope and I am sorry there is nothing I can do to make you stress less. Best of luck! Did the RE say that the sac was measuring correctly?

I only had one sac at 6 weeks with no heartbeat, my RE told me not to get my hopes up and to come back a week later. To my surprise we had 2 babies with heartbeats at 7 weeks who are growing and kicking like crazy now. I will keep you in my prayers.

hopeful -- I will definitely keep you in my thoughts and say a little prayer for your bean. I have my next scan on Tuesday as well. I had one this Tuesday at 6w4d which did show a bean with heartbeat but I've had some spotting on and off (none since Tuesday thank goodness) that RE wants to have another looksie before releasing me to my OB. I'm nervous, mostly because I've had a loss before. I'm praying Tuesday is a great day for us both!

hopeful~ I had an ultrasound at 6w1d, and they saw 2 sacs...actually they said 3 sacs and then backtracked and said it could be a subchorionic hemorrhage. So 2 sacs...nothing to measure, no heartbeat, that meant no fetal pole. They said it was early and not to worry. That night I had a big scare and started bleeding bright red gushes. The next day I couldn't get into my RE, but called my OB who got me in right away and did a scan, so 6w2d, he saw nothing in both sacs and my bleed had grown from the day before. His words were this to me...things don't look good, be prepared for a miscarriage. Back to RE at 6w4d, we saw a heartbeat in one sac, very, very slow though, so she didn't seem hopeful either. More bleeding that night, it was scary, they had me come back the next day again. 6w5d, no heartbeat and we could only see one sac. We were devastated. Our follow up was scheduled for Monday, the one before was a Friday...so we wait all weekend wondering what is going on. 7 weeks, we see both sacs again, but nothing in either one. They asked if we wanted to schedule a D&C, I said not yet...it was the week of Christmas, and I need to wait it out at least a week. They scheduled me to come back the following Monday...so Wednesday night rolls around and I start bleeding again, I called and asked to be seen. I wanted to know if this was a miscarriage so I could be prepared for the holiday, I have older kids at home and needed to be level headed for them. Anyway, they told me to come in, and did the ultrasound...low and behold at 7w3d, we saw 2 little heartbeats!!! It was a holy crap moment, and I bawled my eyes out. At that point I was put on strict bed rest...and here we are today, just about 17 weeks with two little twin girls on the way.

My point is this. No matter how many times they tell you there is no hope, they just don't know. Yes sometimes it goes badly, but when it's early on like you are they can't know or make any predictions. This is not the first time I have been told there was no hope for my early pregnancy, and I have two other daughters to prove the doctors wrong...

Praying for a miracle for you...don't lose hope. :)
