Ealry ultrasound twins?


Q: Dear Dr.,

i had a pelvic ultrasound at 5 weeks 3 days, i attached a photo. The dr. pointed to one fetus, shown with pink arrow. but since i didn't have a full bladder, she asked to come back next week for better pictures..
fraternal twins pregnancies often have a " twin peak" or triangular shaped separation, i seem to have one in my ultrasound shown with yellow arrow.. am i reading too much into my ultrasound? what is then this black triangular sac next to the gestational sac in my ultrasound?

Best regards
