@bdesterhouse i'll occasionally get some throbbing in my left side, and i was made aware that it was a cyst on my left ovary which is fairly normal during pregnancy. your ultrasound technicians will monitor to make sure it doesn't grow, but otherwise it will either dissolve or just hang out for the duration of your pregnancy... as far as what i've been told. totally harmless. i'm pretty prone to small cysts, especially on my left side. no one can for sure say that's what's going on in your case, but at your next ultrasound couldn't hurt to have them check your ovaries.
@bluebell08 and @indigoheightsblog thank you for the input on age gaps in siblings. I'm not even sure why its bothering me. I think it may be because I feel so alone this time. None of my friends are pregnant this time around (they are all done.) @greenbee thanks for sharing your experience!
@lovesclimbing i hope you feel better soon!!! have you asked your midwife about this? you don't have any bleeding do you?
