In brief: Location/size impt

Although uncommon, we do see fibroids on ultrasound during pregnancy.
Most of the time unless the fibroids are in the uterine cavity the pregnancy proceeds without problems. In some cases where the fibroids are numerous and of a certain size, they can increase the risk of premature labor or in thankfully rare cases, cause a premature separation of the placenta prior to labor called an abruption.

In brief: ?? about getting Pg

Uterine fibroids(fibrous balls) in the wall of the uterus come in various sizes & may or may not create pbs in pregnancy.
I occasionally see infants born to moms with fibroids that have a transient distortion in their facial features or never quite make it into head down or bottom down position due to the irregular shape of the womb.Your OB can give an idea if your situation would be a pbm.
