Membrane Fusion

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Hello, I would appreciate your advice, I had a 17 week ultrasound to have an amniocentesis done but the doctor couldn't do it as he said the "membranes had not fused yet" he did not explain anything.

Is this unusually late for them to fuse? i.e. I wondered if this could indicate a problem. I don't know how common this is. Thank you
