No personal experience but I hear its quite common and most babies do just fine after birth baby will be delivered by c section and then they will slowly move the intestines back in and close the hole. I see it all the time on the discovery health channel

Try not to worry
And Good luck.

 Im not sure exactly what that is. I would recommend asking in the pregnancy group as well. Someone there may have more information for you.

I have no personal experience either, but DACIA79 is correct. Luckily you were diagnosed early. It does, however, require more than one surgery fairly often. Just make sure you do exactly as your doc tells you, and I'm sure things will work out. hugs
