Question Twins and possible blighted ovum

I had my first u/s today, and I'm 6 weeks along. There were two sacs in there. One had a visible baby with a heartbeat. The other sac was empty. My doctor said that it could be a blighted ovum, or it may just be too early to see the second baby. I have another appointment in two weeks to see the progess of the second baby.

I'm feeling worried about the second baby. Has anyone heard of a blighted ovum? What are the odds that it is blighted v. too soon to see?
One thing I did notice is I had implantation bleeding twice. Once 3.5 days after my IUI and again about 12 days after my IUI. Would that mean that one baby would be bigger/farther along if it implanted a week earlier?
Is it normal for a baby not to be seen at 6 weeks?

Any thoughts would be appreciated, as I'm kind of concerned about this empty sac thing.

Re: Twins and possible blighted ovum

sometimes by the way the twins are laying it's hard to see the one that's in the back. i have twins and boy #1 is the lower one has always been alot easier to see.

Re: Twins and possible blighted ovum

Thanks dh22....I'm hoping the other is fine but I won't find out for two weeks when I go in for another ultrasound. I am relieved that at least one is doing well. waiting is really hard though.
