8 week ultrasound and no heartbeat or baby

I went for an ultrasound today at 8 weeks because this morning i had some bleeding. At the ultrasound there was no heart beat and no baby. Only a gestational sac. She asked if i was sure on my dates and i said yea. She said thatsnot what we should be seeing at 8weeks. She said to come back in a week. But im not sure... Am i miscarrying?

The way to tell if you don't want to wait a week is to get two beta hCG tests (measuring pregnancy hormone levels in the blood) two days apart.  Call your doc if you want to schedule them, he'll have you go to the lab about 48 hours apart.  The numbers should be doubling or near doubling, in a pregnancy that is going on as normal.  If they are, then you simply have a pregnancy that is newer than the 8 weeks you think it is.  

I hope it all works out for you.
