HELP! Gestational Sac too small for 7 weeks.

Hello there,
first of all thank you so much for taking the time to read. I am going crazy here so I will be forever thankful to whoever might share with me about any similar experiences.
Here's the deal. I confirmed my pregnancy 4 days ago. By my ovulating dates and all that, my doctor calculated a 6-7 week pregnancy. The we went in for the ultrasound and at first she spotted a small sac so she thought I was 4 weeks pregnant instead. Then she looked closer and found a 6.5 week-old embryo with a strong heartbeat. She told me we should keep an eye on that and regarless of how many times I asked her why that was, all I got was a "sometimes it happens, let's just keep an eye on it". She prescribed progesterone, vitamines and so on. Now, by reading in the internet I have found that is the sac doesn't grow this could lead to a misscarriage or that the chances of miscarriage are 80%. Now, I really hope not to sound crazy or too cold but a high risk of misscarriage doesn't worry me. I know there's always a higher risk of having a misscarriage in the first months anyway and I am aware this is even a natural thing. What's freaking me out is the fact that noone will tell me THE REASON WHY A SMALL GESTATIONAL SAC SHOULD BE KEPT AND EYE ON. Please! I just want to know! I am 28 years old. I have a 4 year-old healthy daughter. My first pregnancy was perfectly fine and I had a natural birth. Of course I wouldn't like to misscarriage but really, that's not what I am freaking out about. I know if that happened I could try again and well if it never worked out for me again I'd be happy with my beautiful daughter and would be thankful to have her.
So anyway, if someone could PLEASE tell me what you know about small gestational sacs I would much appreciate it. I don't mean to be rude but if what you are going to write is that all there is to do is wait, please save your time as I have already heard that many times. What I need to know is, what are the risks or having a small gestatitional sac. What could go wrong?
Thank you sooooo much!
Big Hug everyone and I can't wait to hear from you.
