Hello, I am twenty years old and almost 6 weeks pregnant with my first child. At my first doctors appointment (last Monday) they did an ultrasound and later my doctor informed me that they had found a cyst on my right ovary. She did not tell me the size or much about it other than she would keep her eye on it but she was not too awfully concerned about it. About two days later everything started going downhill for me. I just moved in with my fiance and we are due to be married in 3 weeks so we have been busy working hard on fixing the house up because all of our relatives are coming to town for the wedding and we want it looking nice for our guests. My fiance has put a lot of restrictions on the things that I can due because of me being pregnant on top of me having problems with anemia long beforehand. So, essentially the only things I've been allowed to do other then potting plants is painting outside and mowing. Well as of Wednesday I've been having random time periods of really painful stabbing pains at the side of my abdomen that my doctor claimed had a cyst. These pains are usually brought on after I have been up working outside or even out shopping for a decent amount of time. Sitting only worsens the pain and it also seems that this cyst may be pressing down on something because it quite frankly makes me feel like I need to poop really badly when I am hit with these pains but I go to the bathroom and NOTHING. The only thing that I have found that actually makes this pain go away is after it starts hurting to go lie down on the side opposite to the side that has the cyst. After about ten minutes of laying down on that side and writing in pain with tears rolling down my face, it's like it is all suddenly lifted and it goes completely away. I have researched this on the internet but I cannot seem to find anyone that is going through my situation and now that I have been having this problem my fiance won't let me do any work at all because it worries us both about the health of our child as well as myself if I keep trying to work through this pain. Does anyone out there have any idea what could be wrong or know what I am going through?
