In brief: Yes

This depends on fibroid size and location and especially if the fibroid extends or protrudes into the uterine cavity.
Fibroids respond to estrogen (high in pregnancy) by increasing in size. They may revert to normal size after pregnancy. They can also interfere with normal labor. Most obstetricians measure them with ultrasound monthly or so during pregnancy.
