Double Placenta??

So I was at the dr the other day and when they were reviewing what all was on the ultrasound and how the baby was going they said that they had to make note that there was a double placenta so that the dr would know to remove both when getting rid of the afterbirth. I didnt think of it at the time but I should have asked more about this double placenta. Does anyone know anything about having a double placenta and what it means?? Any information would be greatly appreciated since I dont go back to the dr for a good week and a half or so.
