    Default Amniotic Band / Sheet

    Hi Guys

    I had my appointment with my Obs yesterday after my 20 week scan...he told me I have an amniotic Band - on my report it says exactly sheet? Band?
    Anyway I he basically said I continue the pregnancy as normal and no need for any follow ups or monitoring just take it as it comes. He also mentioned the worst case is bub can have loss of limbs but he said its very rare.

    Anyway I went away for the appointment with alot of unanswered questions...so I jumped on the go old internet and did alot of research (WHICH I SHOULD NOT HAVE AS I AM SCARED OUT OF MY BRAINS NOW). It seems like a pretty serious thing to have and I am concerned that I have no further follow ups or scans...!
    I am a first time mum so all this is new to me! I am just waiting advice for anyone who has been in this situation.

    Thanks for taking the time to read.....

    Fingers crossed everything will be ok

    Sorry don't know of infact have never heard of an amniotic band but personally I would be seeking an second obs opinion. If there is any remote possible chance of bub loosing limbs as a result of this ( no matter how rare ) I would be going and seeing another ob to put your mind at ease. Goodluck I hope you get some more satisfactory answers. Especially as this is a first time pregnancy and everything is new and confusing and scary.

    Hi Crafty Mummy,

    I did get a second opinion & I had an amniotic sheet NOT band. They are 2 very different things .... The sheet poses no risk to the baby.

    i was also told my this obs that if it was a band there are operations & monitoring that can be done, the reason the first obs didn't tell me this was because its not covered under the public system.

    Hope that has helped x

    Hmmmm, I didn't know there was a difference. I must research some more! We lost our little girl full term 10 weeks ago to a band around the umbilical cord.
