My wife, 26y.O., 35 weeks pregnant, started complaining about the pain in the middle of her chest 6 weeks ago. It has intensified recently. Fibroid?

In brief: Not likely fibroids

Reflux or heart burn is quite common in pregnancy.
...But other causes of chest pain should be investigated. Asthma can cause pain sensation in chest, but i assume she does not have problem with asthma. Costochondritis--inflammation of the rib-breast bone joints on her chest can cause significant pain as well.. Also, make sure it is not her heart...So it is best to check with her doc...

How can she have fibroid if she is pregnant? She needs a cardiac evaluation , ekg and maybe a cardiac ultrasound or echocardiogram.
