What do you mean its invisible? How does one vanish?

Today I went to my first in a long series of OB appts. Since the last time I visited my OB they have built a new hospital & women's center. This means new offices in a new location. Visiting anywhere the first time can be a scary experience especially when it's mixed with another ........
Finally my Dr came in & we casually joked about me being back AGAIN.. She said she would do an annual exam & then we could take an ultrasound look at the little one. So she got out the US machine and placed it on my belly & what do you know? She found 2 bubbles instead of the standard one.. yes twins.. However she said she didn't think that the one was developing & would probably just disappear.. That this is what is known as a "vanishing or disappearing twin".
What does this mean?? Vanishing Twin Syndrome occurs when one of a set of twin fetuses apparently disappears from the womb during pregnancy, usually resulting in a normal singleton pregnancy. Basically it means on of the fetuses spontaneously aborts..
Well this left me feeling confused, not sure of how I should feel...I am blessed to have one healthy baby, but @ the same time I have lost one of my babies.. Should I mourn, should I not think anything of it, I mean if she wouldn't have done the US I would have never known.. at the same time if I would have been in her office sooner could they have done something to prevent it?? These are the questions that linger in my head..
