Thanks for your query. Amniotic bands are harmless untill unless it is associated with OLIGOHYDRAMNIOS, so please dont get tensed, keep follow up ultrasounds, in rare situations there can be amputation of limbs, but I repeat if associated with oligohydramnios. And this can regress once the baby grows, so nothing to worry at all.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
