Welcome to ehealthforum.
The appearance or feeling of one side of abdomen being fuller could be due to change in position of uterus that can be shifted to right or left side during pregnancy presence of fibroids in uterus or presence of ovarian cysts. To confirm that there are no other serious issues, consider visiting your obstetrician for a though examination and an ultrasound scan.
