babies stomach

[Hello :),
My daughter is 30 weeks pregnant with her second little boy. She had a fetal MRI and they told her yesterday that they cannot definitely say he has a stomach. What does this mean ?!!!

It doesn't mean anything until or unless it's confirmed at birth. If it turns out to be true, then it will likely mean that he will need to get his nutrition from easily digested liquids (yay for breast milk!) rather than from food until it can be corrected. And it *can* be corrected in most cases. If his esophagus isn't connected to the stomach, then they will insert a tube into the stomach.
