twins or not?

Ok so went for my second us today 1st was on fri june 26th 5 weeks 5 days,  1st us no heartbeat no yolk, 1 sac   Today 2nd us, two sacs, 1 heart beat, 1 yolk???? wheres the other heart beat????  I'm confused

Dr said as soon as she saw the sacs your having twins,  and then started looking further and can only find one heart beat which is very slow and one very small yolk.  second sac has whitish in it but not in a circular shape or baby shape? She's not sure at this point?  rescheduled another us for wed next week?  Please help me figure this out?

It could be the start of miscarrying one twin, many women miscarry a twin in early pregnancy and go on to have a healthy pregnancy with the other twin, although this isn't comforting to you, as a mom, it happens more than you'd think. It really could go either way, you're still early on, so hopefully next week your babies are both healthy and measuring correctly!

I had that happen to me with this pregnancy. When i went for my 6 weeks scan there was 2 sacs but only one heart beat, when i went back 2 weeks later the sac had disappeared and i was left with one perfect baby.
