My nephew was born with it. He was born at 24 weeks early. He was in the nicu for 3 months so that they could alowly put his intestines back in his body, so he could gain weight and because he had bleeding on his brain. It's a serious condition and can be stressful but try your hardest not to stress. The chances of your baby coming early are greater. After my nephew got out of the hospital and he one mpre surgery to kinda make him a belly button although it doesn't look like one. Just be strong hun!
