Bit of a Scare

Well this is pelvic news so if you don't want to read it I advise you to click away from the page now.

Some of you will recall that I have a 9 cm cyst on my left ovary.  I'm also pregnant.

I've been having a lot of cramping the last four days and I thought it was most likely just the uterus growing as I reached 16 weeks yesterday.

Well last night the pain was horrible.  It felt like I had a steel rod rammed up my bum and out through my pelvis on the left side.  I'm guessing the cyst is crabby.

This morning I passed some bloody tissue and had a minor amount of pink spotting.  Yes I freaked out a bit.  But I gave myself a pep talk because I wasn't gushing blood.

Tomorrow is my scheduled OB check up of which I will ask if they can ultrasound the pelvis to check on the status of the ovarian cyst.  Hoping they comply with my request.

I'll let all of you know how it goes after the appointment.


  1. Praying that is was the cyst just passing!

  2. I hope it is nothing, or the cyst passing, but don't hesitate to call the OB or head to L&D to get checked out too!!

  3. Hoping it's just related to the cyst and all is well. I'd call the OB today just to run it by them too, just to let them know what's going on.

  4. Fingers crossed all is well. It must be so scary given all you've been through to get to this point.

  5. Praying that it's just the cyst.

  6. I'm praying that it was just the cyst. Good luck tomorrow!
