By your dates you are almost 8 weeks pregnant by now.Normally in pregnancy, cardiac activity appears my 6-7 weeks. In twins it should definitely appear by 6 weeks.
I agree with your doctor that chances of a live pregnancy are less.You may end up with a missed abortion. You can of course,wait another week and repeat the ultrasound.But you need to remember that chances of getting a positive result are low.
