Hi,

I 'm brand new here, this is my first post and unfortunately is not a good one =0(  I went to the Dr today, I'm 16 weeks, and they found an amniotic band. I had never heard of this and of course, I started googling and found horrible stuff like amputated limbs and cleft lips, even miscarriage if it wraps around the cord. I am freaking out and can't stop crying and would like to know if this has happened to anyone here during their pregnancy and what the results were. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you in advance for your answers.

I have no experience with this. What did your doctor say?

The Dr. is sending me for a more in depth ultrasound tomorrow, but it sounded like she hadn't dealt much with it. She's sending me to a hospital. I saw it in the ultrasound and it's literally a bank going across the uterus wall, I had never seen anything like it.
