I am no expert on this and did some of my own research just to provide you an answer.

This will probably be more trouble for you in terms of pain than for the baby.  Since you will have regular checkups for the pregnancy, the cyst will be monitored as well. It sounds like a fluid filled cyst, so you probably have a good chance of a normal delivery.  Discuss the options with your doctor.  If you opt for a c-section, the doctor may be able to remove the cyst at that time, if it is still present and bothering you close to your delivery date.  Who knows, the fact that you are pregnant may aid in causing this cyst to go away on its own.  Or not.  These cysts seem to have a mind of their own.

The big concerns with cysts are ruptures (pain, but not an emergency, although infection is possible) and twisting of the ovary/tube (pain worse than labor and an emergency that could require surgery).  You may be just fine throughout the entire pregnancy, but if surgery is necessary, they will want to wait until the second trimester or later.
