an extra placenta sac...but no baby? Meggie-pooh 1 child; New Hampshire 30 posts

I had to go to L&D this morning cuz when I went to the bathroom this morning, the potty was filled with blood and there was blood on the TP. When I was at the hospital, I stopped bleeding. They took a look inside and said everything was intact and there was no vaginal bleeding. I had an ultrasound done and they said there is an extra placenta sac in there. They said that sometimes happens, but nothing is wrong. I just feel weird now. My baby is good and healthy, but what's up with the extra sac? Was there another baby in there at some point?? If so...what happened to it?? They said sometimes that happens , but still , I worry why it happened. Does any of this sound normal or abnormal to anyone?

Vanishing twin??? But wouldn't they have seen the extra sac before? Like during your complete anatomy u/s or something? Strange.

that happened to my friends mom with her second pregnancy, what had happened is she thought she had a miscarraige and then got pregnant on her next cycle. When her son was born "2 weeks early" there was another sac, and the baby was actually overdue by two weeks. So she had miscarried one twin, but carried the other, and the extra sac past due.
