I was born in 1987 with Gastroschisis and I have been thinking about having children but my doctor and mother said that it would be complicated and I would always be in hospital and they would probably have be born by caesarian and it could kill me. This has really worried me so I wanted to know if anyone else was born with Gastroschisis and had a baby? Or if anyone knows what problems I could have.
I also have a very large scar which goes from belly button area to a few inches below chest. I gain a little weight and i got terrible stretch marks that went red and soar. The doctor said it was because of my scar. This also worries me because my tummy would get a lot bigger if i was pregnant.
I was also born with gastroschisis in 1984 and I also have a very large scar. My doctor told me that there wasn't any reason why I couldn't get pregnant and that everything should be okay. But that was really the case!!! I guess every case is different but for me it took me 5 years to get pregnant after my husband and I got married and I ended up being pregnant in my right tube, due to scar tissue from my gastroschisis surgery. Then this past year I found out that I was pregnant again and I made it to 11 week and had to have a d and c and I have been trying to get pregnant ever since. I am not going to give up! And as long as you have a great doctor and you want a child I wouldn't give up either. I have the same problem with my scar hurting me and the stretch marks! But I went from 141 lbs to over 225, but I am loosing weight! I have had a few other problems with my bowels and things but I consider myself lucky to be here! If you have any other questions please feel free to ask!
I was born with gastroschisis and I am 11 weeks pregnant. My ob told me I should be able to delivery naturally. I have a large scar about 4-5 inches long and get pain sometimes and stretch marks if I gain even a little weight. I would talk to your gynecologist chances are you'll be fine to have children.Good luck!
I was born with gastroschisis in 1980 and I also have a large scar that was always called my zipper lol. I have had 4 kids naturally and am pregnant with my 5th so far no problems. Hope everything works out for you.
I am 26 and have been trying to get pregnant my doctor told me I have one blocked tube and the other is upside down. He said it was caused by my gastroschisis I just need to know if anyone else has that problem
I was born with gastroschisis in 1977. My first child was a healthy full term boy two months before i turned eighteen. Six years later i had my daughter also healthy and full term. When she was nine months old i found out i was having twins. They were born at thirty six weeks due to complications from the pregnancy not the gastroschisis. They were born healthy and big for twins at 6lbs 12 ounces and 5lbs 14 ounces. All were delivered vaginally including one of the twins feet first. I also have always had a very large scar. A year or so ago my Dr attempted a laproscopy because I've been having some pain and informed me there is so much scar tissue in there and had he known he would not have delivered my babies. I would say to have one done to see what you're dealing with first so you know. Every person is different and their bodies hell differently
