Tailbone swollen and pregnant. How can I tell if its a cyst or just regular swellng? If it is a cyst will it go away on its own? Swellings calmed down

In brief: See your OB/GYN
Tailbone discomfort is almost universal for pregnant women in the last 5 weeks of pregnancy.
If there is a growth to be worried about, you should talk to your doctor about it and maybe consider imaging tests after you have delivered.
