DC #1 Gastroschesis now expecting DC #2, anyone else?

My ds was born 2 1/2 years ago with gastoroschesis (hole in abdominal wall that allows intestines to come out of the body) and now we are expecting our second child. We won't know for about 3 more weeks if dc #2 has it. our chances go from 1-2 in 1,000 (everyone's chances) to 2 in 100. I was wondering if anyone else has a child that was born with gastroschesis and then had a healthy dc after that?

I haven't personally Mama but one of my good friends went through this with her first and her second two did not have it. HTH and I hope everything goes ok for you.

I have a second cousin that had it and his older sister didn't.

Thanks! It helps to know of others that had a healthy child after one with problems. I feel frustrated because no one knows why it happens so I feel helpless to keep it from happening again. I think I'll be on pins and needles until after my test at 16 weeks.
