This happened to me today. I have been told to come back for another scan in 2 weeks incase either sac has 'caught up' Has this happened to anyone? I'm totally bricking it !triplets!

No, but wow!

I do think that an empty sack and a "vanishing twin" is quite common though so I'd be trying really hard in your shoes not to expect multiples.
But whether it's one or three, congratulations flowers

Wow indeed! smile

There's something called superfetation, where you can ovulate twice or more in a cycle and conceive twins (no reason why it couldn't be triplets though) that are a few weeks apart (or indeed have different fathers.)

It's very rare indeed, and much more likely you have two genuinely empty sacs in there, but I bet the sonographer doesn't see that very often!

Congratulations either way!

Thanks for replying both I think it is unlikely that anything will come of the other two sacs but it'll be in the back of my mind until the next scan.
