My daughter in law is expecting and twins are common in her family. She had an ultrasound and it showed the baby and another sack. The doctor told her it is a yolk and will go away in time. I have seen many ultrasound and have never seen this or even heard of it. If anyone else has please let me know. I was just wondering if this could be a twin

Usually if the ultrasound is a little early, the sac will still be there. That is where the baby gets its nutrients from until the umbilical cord is formed.
