Pain only mid cycle?

For the past 9 months or so, I have been having pain at mid-cycle. It feels like gas pains but I also have feelings of pressure in my pelvic area. This is only around the time that I ovulate and the gas like pains alternate from side to side each month.
Could this be normal ovulation pains or a sign of ovarian cancer? I had multiple vaginal ultrasounds a few months ago because I was pregnant (then miscarried) and everything seemed normal. The pressure continued on and off during the pregnancy but not the gas like pains.
I don't have any of these symptoms at any other time during the month.
I'm going to see my doctor on the 16th now that I've noticed the pattern but I want to be proactive and know what to ask him about.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

That pain that you feel each month at mid cycle when you ovulate is called "mittleshmertz"( I may have misspelled it). Sometimes it is accompanied by blood tinged mucous or just plain egg-white type mucous. I asked my doctor about it once and it is normal.
