From what I understand, you should see a fetal pole by that time. However, I would go back for another u/s in about a week to see if things have changed or not.

After how many weeks does the risk of miscarriage decrease?

According to a 2008 study published in the journal, Obstetrics & Gynecology, miscarriage risk falls rapidly with advancing gestation. The researchers studied miscarriage rates of 697 women and found that the risk of miscarriage at 6 weeks gestation was 9.4%. At 7 weeks gestation, the risk of miscarriage fell to 4.2%, and at 8 weeks of gestation, it fell to 1.5%. The overall miscarriage rate for this group of women was 1.6% (11 of the 697 women miscarried at some point during their pregnancies). This study involved women who did not have any symptoms of miscarriage when they were first enrolled in the study, and where evidence of fetal heartbeat was seen via ultrasound during their first prenatal visit (the first visit took place between week 6 and week 11 gestation). So, if you have seen a fetal heartbeat on the ultrasound, and if you are not experiencing any symptoms of a miscarriage (i.e. heavy cramping, bleeding), then your risk of miscarriage is likely to be similar to the women in this study.
