Bartholin cyst- normal or not?


Q: Hello, I am 24 weeks, 5 days pregnant.
I was recently diagnosed with a Bartholin cyst. I was put on antibiotics and have been dealing with severe pain. Today, I felt that the cyst had grown much bigger and was causing more swelling/pain. I just woke up to use the bathroom and noticed blood. None on my clothes, but when I wipe the whole tissue turns red. I also noticed that the cyst feels smaller. Typically I would be calling my doctor for such questions, but I am out of town at a wedding. So my question is, does it sound like the bleeding is normal or should I find myself a hospital?
