Amniotic band ?

I had my first scan last month and I was told I had a amniotic band. I didn't think anything of it until I got home and Googled it.
I had three weeks of a emotional turmoil over it and I have now gone into denial about anything baby related because I feel I can't plan anything (trying not to get too attached).
I am so upset has anyone got any experience of this? I have been told I won't find out anymore until my 20 week scan where I will be referred to a specialist.

I had an amniotic band they said just to be extra aware of baby's movements and they kept an eye on it but by the end of my pregnancy it had moved

Noidea1 - how did you feel about it all? What advice was you given?

I had an amniotic sheet i never really found much out about it. Was everything ok at 12 week scan? I think the worry is i can wrap around small limbs like fingers and toes and cut off circulation but i am sure that is earlier on in pregnancy therefore if everything is ok it will stay that way (i think!).

If youre worried could be worth speaking to your midwife for reassurance?

Dextyboo everything was fine at the scan I asked my midwife and she just told me she only had one woman with it and it reabsorbed.

I heard they do do that too. Have a read on the net but speak to your midwife too. I'm sure its nothing to worry about.
