9 weeks pregnant, measuring 7.5weeks and slow heartbeat

Hi! I went for my 9 week ultrasound yesterday and the baby measured only 7 weeks 5 days, a very slow heartbeat was detected but wasn't able to hear it with the Doppler.  I have to other healthy babies via c-section and have a lot of scar tissue, could this be a reason that the heart was not visible or dates be wrong? I am so concerned and worried.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.  Dr. said that because they saw a heartbeat that is a good sign, but is concerned the heartbeat was so slow.  He did not say how slow?
