Im currently 29 weeks but when i was about 12 weeks along i found out that my baby had Gastroschisis. This is a condition where my babys bowels are outside of the belly wall and will have to have surgery when she is born. I see a specialist about every four weeks to have ultrasounds and have had the amnio done and many scares with down sydrome throught this pregnancy. I just came across this community and wanted to see if anyone has a baby with this condition or anything similar. It has been a wild ride ecspecially since this is my first pregnancy but we are dealing with it pretty well.View Thread
