Is it true that a 4 inch fibroid tumor in the uterus too big to have a baby with?

Fibroids: No, it is not generally true. Depending on where it is located on the uterus, itmay get in the way of an easy or normal vaginal delivery, but most of the time, it does not, and a c-section is always still possible.

Dr. Ham has given a good answer. I hope that if you want to be a mother, you will be sucessful. And there are ways of removing these tumors without removing the uterus.
