continuing pregnancy to term in twin pregnancy with one being dead in early weeks is very rare .
1 in 12500 twin pregnancy can go to full term ,one being alive normal the other known as papyraceous[mummified foetus ].
please discuss with your doctor and get explained.
chance of one surviving foetus is more with double sac and double placenta pregnancy ;\.
hoping for the best .
