Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
In general, gestational sacs can be seen through transvaginal ultrasound from 4-5 weeks 'gestation, and can be seen through transabdominal ultrasound since 6 weeks' gestation. A fetus in a pregnancy bag can usually be seen through transabdominal ultrasound at 8 weeks' gestation. However, there are many factors that might influence your ultrasound results (no fetus is seen at 8 weeks' gestation). The most common thing is the wrong estimate of gestational age (it's likely that your gestational age hasn't reached 8 weeks). Other factors that can affect are your body posture, whether or not the bladder is full when the ultrasound is performed, the location of the implantation, as well as the ultrasound device and its own ultrasound operator. The existence of 2 pockets of pregnancy may indicate you are pregnant twin.
We recommend that you follow the advice of your obstetrician to do another ultrasound again in 2 weeks to determine whether your fetus is indeed developing or not. For now you don't need to worry too much first, keep eating healthy foods, drink enough, get enough rest, consume your pregnancy vitamins regularly.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
