Worried about ultrasound... :(

My husband and I decided to try for our second... I got off cezarette and was pleasantly surprised that I got pregnant so quickly! Our first month of trying.
I made a post earlier because I'm confused at what my due date is (hence why I don't have a ticker yet). AF came on August 30, but I had spotting/light bleeding for three days starting on September 10 (I figured it was implementation bleeding, even though that would have meant I ovulated earlier than mid-cycle, but it could have been a light period). My first HCG test was Oct 5 and came back 176, and then we took another test on Oct 10 and came back 3,271. I figured for such a huge spike in only 5 days, at least I'm going strong.
My first appointment with my OB-GYN was Oct 11 and I've been trying not to panic. She did an ultrasound and the sac was empty. She said that going by the first day of my last period (August 30), it would make me 6 weeks, and the size of the sac is normal. She said not to worry, that it may be too early to see anything. I've had a miscarriage before (many years ago), so it's hard not to worry.
I thought people can hear the heartbeat and, at least, see the yolk by now! She scheduled me for another appointment on Oct 26 so we can check again. What's your experience? Have any of you seen empty sacs at 6 weeks. Should I be preparing myself for the worst? My daughter turned 1 years old on Oct 6, and we're so looking forward to having another baby soon.
