    I had my first Ultrasound today and saw my punkin bean's heartbeat for the first time ! YAY!!!

    My doc also saw two ovarian cysts...and didn't seem concerned at all...said they would dissolve throughout my pregnancy. I was wondering...is that normal?

    Cysts are awesome and proof it's viable! I had a 4.5 cm cyst on my right ovary, it almost covered the entire thing. Guess what? It's how my body made natural progesterone to support my pregnancy with my twin boys! :happydance:

    Hang in there, it will start dissipating around week 12 and might involve a bit of cramping. But, it's a VERY GOOD thing <3

    I have had Normal cysts and abnormal - neither was any major concern although the abnormal was monitored closely (I also had a very large ovarian cyst removed years ago - it weighted 3kg). Abnormal cyst remained but didn't grow, it was still there at my last check 6mth ago
