OUCH!! I'm so sorry!!!
To me it sounds pretty far out toward the hip but, if you push on it does it hurt bad? Do you then feel sick? If you start to throw up or get diarrhea or get a fever call the Doctor IMMEDIATELY-it's appendicitis. Accept that if any of these things happen you'll just HAVE to call the Dr. today & take baby with.
But, it could also be a cyst or endometriosis, too - it's hard to tell because everything's so squished in together down there. But unless the cyst bursts, it won't suddently get dramatically more painful - it'll be gradual pain that receeds from time to time (based on hormones).
Just be cautious with it... my DH appendix burst last year (he was convinced it was stomach flu) and was in the hospital for 4 days after the surgery to get rid of the infection it created.
Don't ignore your instincts - trust that the pain is telling you something. If it is appendix - it only takes about 24 hours of pain before it bursts and the surgery is just laproscopy & you recover very quickly if it doesn't burst.
