In brief: Worrying will not

Help the matter any.
Vanishing of one of the twin is being recognized more often due to the common use of ultrasound in early pregnancy. I understand your being concerned, but that will not affect the outcome. Please see this site for information on this topic. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/271818-overview.
