I couldn't find anywhere else to post this, and there isnt much information available online on the subject. Ive been sick for months now, and 6 weeks ago I went to a recommended OB and he said based on uterus size I was 12 to 13 weeks preg. (which fit when my periods stopped but I hadn't gotten a positive hpt yet) At what would have been my 16/17 week appt, my family and I opted to do the blood test for downs and cf. they called and said that the test came back abnormal and they thought my dates were off. The ultrasound revealed that I'm only just now 12 weeks but that I have a large cyst on my right ovary. Its as big as the baby if not bigger. Im waiting on phone calls from the doctor, and am scared senseless. this is my family and I's first baby. Im single, and my parents adopted me when i was 10 so neither of us know whats going on. Can you carry full term with a cyst this large? what happens if it ruptures? can I still work? I have a very physical job. Wow... didn't plan to post a book. Any help or links for information is great.View Thread
Hey britt! good to hear from someone. ive switched doctors and moved back to my hometown so things are a bit less stressful. the doc wants to drain it with a needle because it gets a burning pain whenever the baby bumps that side. its a major jumper so right now we are waiting and watching. Ill have a sono every 2 weeks until its safe enough to operate unless they have to do emergency. im on permanent work leave now because i have a couple other problems. nothing to do but start setting up the nursery. we are planning on keeping the sex a surprise.View Thread
