Don't worry much! It's actually very common for women to have cysts! Just that most women don't even realise they have them, cos cysts won't affect you much unless the size is too big. The cyst grows bigger because of our monthly menses, but there's no menses these 9 months, so it will not grow bigger during pregnancy. Your baby is in a way helping you to control the growth of the cyst! My gynae says so too.
