Probably ok: This may be a corpus luteum cyst, which will go away during pregnancy. If it is a"typical" ovarian cyst, it may rupture. But if it does it is outside the uterus and will not affect the pregnancy.

Ovarian cyst: I highly doubt that the cyst will do anything to your baby. It may disappear later in the pregnancy altogether. One thing that needs to be ruled out is ectopic pregnancy, since sometimes that can present with ovarian lesions resembling cysts. If your baby is seen within the uterine cavity - it's reassuring. Your doc may choose to have a follow up ultrasound done later in the pregnancy.

Normal: The cyst that forms on an ovary during the 1st trimester is not only normal, it is essential for the health of the pregnancy. This cyst produces the Progesterone that supports the pregnancy for the first 10-12 weeks. Cramps may be a problem if they are associated with vaginal bleeding. Occasional cramps are common early in a pregnancy.
