Possible twins?

Went for our first ultrasound today at 6 wks 2 days.  Doctor found one healthy baby with heart rate.  She also found another sac, measuring a week smaller, with no heartbeat.  She asked me to come back next week to check.  It could be too early for the twins heartbeat or it could end up being a vanishing twin.  Anyone ever hear of this before? Any words or encouragement?

    I have heard of it before but I don't have any experience with it. Keep positive and fx for your next u/s next week. Hopefully there is a 2nd heartbeat!

    My twins and a lot of twin moms I know all had babies measuring different gestational ages.  It's like your dr said, it's possible the second one isn't far enough along. Unfortunately, there isn't much to do but wait.  

    I was was just diagnosed with a SCH or twins.  It sounds like a similar situation to yours, I'm not far enough along to tell.  The limbo kind of sucks.

    Hopefully you get the second heartbeat!

    With my second i had some major bleeding around 6 weeks, they got me in found twins but i was losing baby B, they called it vanishing twins.... Also my RE does not like to do US until 8 weeks for this reason, could be too early could be gone already... I hope its just too early for you! Good luck!

    Started TTC in 2006, LOTS of trying, and trying, and 7 rounds of IVF with 13 embryos, 2 perfect little boys and 5 loses....
    All finished with babies, started to make diet changes, Keto, to be MORE for my kids, lost 30 pounds, still going, and 3 months in, I had a natural cycle, and then ovulated... Hubs and I are going to see what happens now... Maybe a natural pregnancy? After everything we have been through? Or just a return to normal hormones? We shall see what the future holds!
