In brief: Fibroids pregnant

Twins and large fibroids increase the risk of premature labor.
That is the main risk. The fibroids don't directly affect the pregnancy in most cases although there is some risk of pain, bleeding or effects on the placenta. If the fibroids were in the lower area, they could interfere with labor.
