mqc1079 - July 6

My girlfriend is pregnant, her LMP started on May 15th, 2011. Yesterday we went to our first doctor appointment and they gave her an internal ultrasound, there was no visible fetus, all that was there was a gestational sac and yolk. After the test the nurse met with us and said that the sac is measuring 5.5 wks, going by LMP she should be 7wks. We have a follow up ultra sound scheduled for next week. Is this unusual? She called the nurse today and the nurse told her not to worry, but not out of the clear yet. And that if next week there is no heartbeat that then we should be worried. My girlfriend is 22 years old and her mother has a history of miscarriages. We found out she was pregnant on 6/21/2011 by taking a urine test and it came up with a faint line, she followed up with another home test 1 week later and still was a faint line. My girlfriend said she ovulates late in her cycle and I am wondering if this could have anything to do with this? I am very worried and feel as though this week is going to be the longest week of my life. Thank You

Also she has had no cramping and no bleeding, and just over past couple days started feeling nauseous
