  • have you ever had an ovarian cyst rupture? i'll pray for you that it's only that.

    my mom had her appendix rupture and it happened after only one day of symptoms.

  • I have PCOS, so usually I'll have that pain often throughout early and mid pregnancy. My doctor says it's just ovarian cysts rupturing. I believe with appendicitis you usually have a fever, as well.

  • I had my appendix burst 6 wks after delivery. BUT I asked what would happen if it had burst while I was pregnant...and they said they would do the surgery with the baby in utero. Good luck and I hope its not your appendix.
