Here are some...: Based on what described, I assumed you're in the first pregnancy and the "orange-sized' left ovarian simple cyst is an incidental finding. Although the most reasonable course of care is focus on fetal nurturing, care, and F/U, still ask and work with the attending doc for individual details on the related subjects so to balance between medical necessities and professional possibilities.
