Gastrocentesis

I just found out today that my baby may have Gastrocentesis, can anyone give me any info on it and share any stories if you've had a baby with it?

It's where the bowels of the fetus are on the outside of the body. I know it happens about 1/2000 births.

How will you know for sure? Csection if the baby does?

My nephew was born with it. He had surgery immediately following birth. He has a scar, but is a happy, healthy 13yo boy.

I will have a repeat csection, but they saw it on a early gender u/s.

How long did he have to stay in the hospital after birth?

About a month? He was a preemie too though so i think that was part of it. They had known he had the condition but she had premature labor and couldn't stop it.

They thought that my dd had that. It turns out it was cysts on the ovaries. Which they found in a later sonogram. Are you having a boy or girl?

They think it's a girl, but aren't sure.
