2 placentas

Today I went in to get the baby monitored since I have to go in 2 times a week till the baby is born. They always do an ultrasound and today the technician took a little longer and then she started asking if anyone(meaning my partner or I) have a history of twins in their family. So I answered my partner and she asked if I had my final ultrasound done. I said I have not till next week. She said she was going to do a full ultrasound for me and as she did she told me how I had two placentas. She also mentioned how it wasn't in the same place. After she mentioned how I could have had a vanishing twin. Has anyone ever experienced this?

Not sure if mine is the same as i have 2 placentas 1 baby. Since 6 weeks there has only been 1 baby but at 13 weeks they found the 2nd placenta. Told me it could have been twins or just an odd placenta. I wont know for sure if it was twins untill i deliver and they test the placenta. Im 30+2wks atm. Hoping they can give me answers after my baby girl is born. I had not heard of it before it happening to me and same with my mum. Hope u get some answers and good luck with the rest of ur pregnancy
