In brief: Macroglossia

Congenital macroglossia has many possible causes: down syndrome, gargoylism, muscle hypertrophy, gland hyperplasia, hemangiomas/lymhangiomas, trisomy 22, laband syndrome, lingual thyroid etc.
.And many more...If it were large enough of a concern, I am sure you would have been told. If you are curious, u should ask, but seemingly your doc was not concerned... Congrats on your pregnancy and good luck.
