I will be 13 weeks tomorrow and I cannot relax about this pregnancy. I am constantly nervous about if everything is okay. I have been having this pain on my right side where my ovary is. I had a 6cm cyst when they did an ultrasound at the end of December. My doctor just said it was the Corpus Luteum and that it would go away after the first trimester. I always feel like I am overracting and don't like to call there becuase I feel as though I am bugging them. The nurse there can be kind of hard to read at times. Am I every going to be able to enjoy this pregnany?

Don't worry- you aren't alone!! It's very hard to relax no matter how far along you are. But just take each day at a time.

And please don't stress about the cyst!! Almost all pregnant women have one (because it's stayed for progesterone production), just some are smaller than others, meaning they wouldn't notice them.

And don't feel bad about calling the doc's office...if it brings more comfort to you, then by all means, do it. That's what they're there for!

I lost my baby at 20 weeks. Relaxing is nearly impossible for me! I wasn't so much worried about early m/c since I never had one before, I am just worried about that we don't know why, but sometimes babies die. My baby died for no apparent reason. There was only a 1% chance of that happening. So yes, I am freaked out. If it happened once it could happen again and could happen to anyone, not just me. We are never safe in pregnancy.

So I guess I'm not much help. I wish I could relax. Sometimes I almost do and actually think about bringing this baby home but then I stop myself and think let's not get to far ahead of ourselves. I guess for me I'm just taking it one day at a time and trying my best to enjoy the baby right now, because you never know if today is the last day. I guess that applies to life in general too, we should enjoy our DHs and other kids too, because you never know what will happen tomorrow.

I've written similar posts. I'm 15 weeks and 4 days and not relaxed either. I'm glad to have this forum to come & chat w/others who understand what I'm feeling.

Omigosh I have that same pain, its like a dull achey pain. I also went to the dr. about it b/c i was worried, but i had a cyst on my Left side-not my right. They said that could be "reflective" pain, where the cyst is on one side but the pain is on the other. I have a 2MM one as well. But i know cysts are good b/c they help with progesterone.

I am only 5 weeks and I don't think i will relax either...I try to talk to myself to calm down but it is just so hard. I think we all feel the same way that you do. Just take baby steps and try to enjoy your pregnancy....

I know nothing about cysts but maybe it is similar to Doxie. I understand about feeling akward calling all the time but if it helps you feel better.

I am never going to not feel nervous, I am so early in this I feel like I am going to wake up and not be pregnant. I feel like there isn't going to be a bebe I only wanted it so bad and I have gone mad thinking I am really pregnant. I don't have any symptoms, just being tired witch isn't very different from anyother day of my life. I was feeling queezy before but not really anymore.

I guess this is why this board exsits not one of us is going to feel comfortable at all. I am sorry go to the Dr. and reasure yourself and me!!
