      Hi Alisha, thank you for your email. At this early stage of your pregnancy it is normal to see only a yolk sac as it is too soon to visualize the embryo. The yolk sac supports the pregnancy in the early weeks and is a very good sign that the pregnancy is progressing as expected. You will see the embryo and heart beat in another week. Congratulations and kind regards Monica
