Well, don't panic yet.  How sure are you of the count?  In other words, could you be five weeks along and not 6 weeks 4 days?  Quite often in these situations, the woman goes back in two weeks and has an ultrasound, and there is the baby.

What I would do in your shoes is brace for the worst but hope for the best.  I would also call the doctor and ask if I could get two beta hCG tests 48 hours apart, starting today or tomorrow, so you don't have to wait ten long days for a clue.  If your hCG levels are rising as they should for a growing pregnancy, then you will have some mind's ease.
