Hi i have previously put up a post asking if anyone has had an ovarian cyst when pregnant and i got a few great replies.

It also made me think that i now may refuse the opertion as it seems a better decision for the baby.
I was just seeing if anyone has actually had this opertion when they were pregnant?
I am suppose to have it next week when i will be 16 weeks. Thankyou

How big is your cyst? Is it growing? I have a cyst and it was 4cm at my 20 week scan, I have another scan at 32 weeks due to other things and they said they were just going to leave it as it wasn't that big!

I had a dermoid cyst and my ovary removed when I was 14 weeks pregnant with my second child. It was very, very large (over 10 inches in diameter) and it was a major surgery leaving me with a scar from belly button to pubic bone. I was in hospital for a week but recovered quickly and the rest of the pregnancy was uncomplicated.

it was 6cm at my 3 month scan and i have another scan 2moro to measure it, i will be 4 months. So i will see 2moro if it is growing or not and then they have an operation booked for me on wednesday.
