Pregnant with Cyst on ovary

My husband and I went in for our 1st appointment with our OB/GYN.  The ultrasound showed a healthy growing tiny baby but it also showed that a cyst had developed on my right ovary.  Is this common?  Will this affect my pregnancy?  Mind you, I've had 3 previous miscarriages.

It is common for cysts to develop in early pregnancy.  I had one with my son, about the size of an orange and it was painful.  I was suprised to learn that they are helpful in that they help sustain the pregnancy until the placenta is formed and can take over.  They will monitor it and make sure it doesn't continue to grow after the placenta is formed and fully functioning, but until then that is helping to keep the baby.  Mine was totally gone by the time I was 20 weeks.

I have also had multiple m/c and am now 10 weeks pregnant. When I went in for my 5 week u/s they showed me a cyst that I also ahd on my right overy. They told me that this was completely normal and that it should disappear after my first trimester. They are thinking that it was from the Clomid that I was taking to get pregnant. Did you use any kind of fertility medicine?

Congrats on your pregnancy and please do not sorry although I know it is hard not actually do. Please keep us updated.

Most likely it is a corpus luteum cyst.  Many times when you ovulate a cyst will form on the follicle that released the egg.  These cysts are usually small but can get to be large enough to cause pain and discomfort.  Even the small cysts can cause some pain.  These will usually resolve themselves by the end of the first trimester and even the large ones don't usually have any adverse affects on the pregnancy.  I am on pregnancy # 8 (inc 2 m/c's) and this pregnancy was the first that I've known of having a cyst on my ovary...by around week 10 I no longer felt the twinges of pain from that side and I am not 31 weeks and all is well.
