Baby boy

Yes we are expecting another baby and it is a little boy.. I went in on Monday to find out the sex of the baby. It was at one of those 4D ultrasound places, when the lady started she saw something on the ultrasound, she said that either the baby's intestines or heart was growing outside of the body and that I needed to see my doctor. Well it was five at night so I had to wait until Tuesday to get into my doctor. I researched it all night long and knew it was gastroschisis or an omphalocle. I went into the doctor on Tuesday, they did an ultrasound and confirmed that it was one of these two things but that I needed to see the specialist. We went to the specialist yesterday and they confirmed our worst fears. It is a very large omphalocele, the baby's liver, intestines, and half of the heart are growing outside of his body in a sac. They spent lots of time looking at every part of our little guy and their are other concerns as well. They did an amniocentisis- if the chromosomes come back abnormal than our baby will pass away. If the chromosomes are normal, then they will look at the heart, if the heart is ok then they will get a team of doctors together and see if they are able to place all of the organs back inside his body. They did not give us very good chances. Our hearts are broken, but we know that Heavenly Father is in charge. I know he is aware of us and our little boy. We will pray and hope that the circumstances will get better and that somehow our little one will be ok. I am so very grateful for such amazing family and friends. We have so much support and I am grateful for everyone of you who are keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. I am grateful for Jason, he is the only thing that is getting me through this, he is the greatest thing that ever happened to me and I really don't know what I would do without him. We have to take it one step at a time, right now we are just waiting for the amnio results, which take a week, then depending on those we will move to the next step.. I love this baby more than anything, I can't imagine life without him, but I know that I will have him forever

The ball in the center is the omphalocle.
