Cysts while pregnant!

I recently found out I have a cyst on one of my ovaries, it cause alot of pain sometimes but the doc doesn't want to do surgery he just wants to keep an eye on it for now. After finding out I discovered I was pregnant and now im worried about what kind of problems it can cause for me or the baby. I've been having some strange pain that I don't remember having with my daughter. I'm just wondering how often these things occur and what happens when your pregnant and you have a cyst.

  • I had one early on in my pregnancy and I freaked out when I had abdominal pain. It turns out that the cyst had burst, but the baby was completely fine. They usually don't cause problems..

  • I have at least 2 on each of mine and everything was fine. No problems because of them =) I had some slight pain at times because of them but I get that all the time so it was nothing new....Congrats and make sure to bring up your concern to your doc at your appointment.

  • My friend had cysts while she was pregnant. Her doctor did not want to remove hers either. He told her that with cysts and pregnancies, most of the time they will go away on their own. Just let the doctor know your concerns and I am sure he will let you know what to expect.

  • Its rare they remove cyst unless they are big..Mostly they will rupture and go away. I have had issues since I was 14. Not as bad sine having kids but I have had countless cust rupture and even when pregnant.

  • I had a cyst when I was 19 weeks preg. It was so painful they removed mine along with an ovary while I was still preg. The baby was fine.

  • They usually don`t cause problems, but you can always call your OB to be on the safe side and set your mind to ease
