If you are currently in or remember your first trimester, did you feel your pregnancy more on one side than the other? And, is this normal? I know the side I am feeling everything on is the one that produced the follicle (the u/s tech mentioned it during first u/s). Plus my left ovary is a lazy bum that is a long for the ride.
I just like to think every time I feel some pain or pressure, its the bean growing that helps me get thru another day. But I won't lie, I am dying to go for my next u/s to see if things are progressing well enough. I hate this rollercoaster. ugh.

Hope everyone is having a nice long weekend.

If you feel the pain on the side you ovulated, you likely simply have a cyst from ovulation. That cyst feeds baby until the placenta kicks in. It will diminish in time but they can get large. In my first pg it was nearly 5 cm which sin't huge but enough to be uncomfortable. It will go away. Hang in there and congrats!
