Hi all, I've been a bit MIA this week because we had our anatomy scan on Thursday. The baby looks great, but the scan revealed the presence of an amniotic band.
Amniotic bands are random threads of tissue that extend from or across the amniotic sac. They can be dangerous as sometimes the baby can become entangled in them. We have a follow-up with MFM next week to do another scan to (a) determine if it's still there and (b) try to determine how much risk it poses to the baby.
Statistically, I'm likely to be the only one here dealing with this. But I figured I'd throw the topic out there in case anyone else is dealing with this, or has dealt with it in previous pregnancies.
