No fetal heartbeat detected w/ultrasound; 6-8 weeks pregnant. What now

That's pretty much the situation. Depending on how the pregnancy date is calculated, my wife is 6-8 weeks pregnant. Otherwise, the midwife said the amniotic sac and embryo looked OK. We are going out of town for two weeks, so can't get a follow-up until then. Should be be worried? What should we expect?

If the fetus isn't viable, will my wife continue to show increasing signs of pregnancy over the next two weeks? Any precautions? Any advice?
We have been trying for a couple of years; we are in a good situation, because we have a healthy son (age 3, just about) but this is still causing a lot of worry and upset. Thank you so much.
