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.

Hi there! My name is jen. I am a mom to 2 little girls. My youngest is almost 2yrs now. She was born with Gastroschisis. I am also a volunteer with Avery's Angels Gastroschisis Foundation. Check out the website, and the links below. On the face book page you can talk to other moms & see pics, share stories.... I hope you can find some support through AAGF! My daughter had a great recovery...but every gastro baby's recovery process is differnt. She had no major setbacks....but spent 7week in the NICU. I hope things are going well for you and baby. Hope to hear from you in the future.
