    Hi everyone,

    I hope someone can help as i'm a little bit worried...

    Last week at my 16-week scan they found an amniotic band in my uterus (also called an amniotic sheet). Apparently this is something that could have caused major complications in early pregnancy, but my consultant didn't seem too worried about it at the 16-week stage, and told me that it shouldn't have any implications as it is not touching the baby, and the baby is moving freely. It is like a membrane going straight across the uterus at one end.

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience of this in your pregnancies? Apparently it affects about 1 in 200, but it's something I hadn't even heard of until yesterday!!

    Again, the consultant has told me not to worry - but hey, try telling that to a first-time pregnant woman!!

    Thank you!!!!!
