Would you be upset?

So my brother in law's girlfriend is pregnant with her second baby. Their first will be 2 on the 28th. She went for a doctor's appointment today and found out a few things. When they listened to the heartbeat it was slower than what my niece's was. Apparently there is some old wives tale that says if you go by that, it will be a boy. They're extatic. Well...after her exam they told her that she was pregnant with twins, but the second baby didn't develop. They told her that her body will eventually get rid of the second sac and so on and so forth.

The thing is, she's not upset at all. Neither is my brother in law. They are all giddy with the fact that they didn't end up with twins. I would be upset if that was me. I'm not crazy about the idea of twins, but if I was going to have twins and 1 didn't make it past the first 5 weeks (which is where she's at), I would be extremely upset. Does anyone else feel this way? (not looking for a "when does life really start" hooplah debate, just general feelings)
