Hello dear,
This is not a rare case. Very often pregnancy begins as a twin pregnancy, then one embryo fails to survive, slowly it gets absorbed on its own without any harm to the surviving baby. The surviving baby will most likely be healthy and deliver at term. Consult your doctor, who may advice regular ultrasonography, to monitor the babies.
hope for the best.
