Am I loosing one twin?

I had an IVF and now I'm 8 weeks pregnant with twins. However one baby is very behind.The first scan was two weeks ago and the baby was 4 days behind, second normal and no heartbeat detected. Today we found both heartbeat but one baby is 5 days behind by CRL 7.3 mm and two weeks by mean sac 10.2mm.- 3 mm difference only... The result: poor prognosis for one twin... I'm wondering if someone had the same issue and the baby survived. My next ultrasound in 14 days...

Oh goodness, that is so hard.  What is your doctor saying?  Are you seeing a specialist now?
