One Sac Missing...What happened? Heartbroken...

two sacs at 5 weeks

two sacs at 5 weeks

I went for an early ultrasound at 5 weeks(last monday) and the doctor found two sacs, and ordered me to come back on today but only found one sac. Not two sacs with one empty...The second one disappeared all together...

I had red bleeding and cramping but nothing heavy that compares to miscarriage bleeding. Now I am starting to think that I lost one of my babies. I am heartbroken...

Picture attached was taken at exactly five weeks.
Have any other twin moms experienced this?
