Fibroids are nothing but thickenings of the uterine muscle. They are very common - 2 to 3 out of every 10 women of reproductive age have fibroids. We are discovering them more, as we do a lot more ultrasounds these days.
Sometimes, fibroids can grow in pregnancy and can cause a lot of pain, but it is not that common.
As the fibroid is fundal, that is sitting on top of the uterus, I can not see it causing any problem with growth of the baby or with delivery.
Your doctor will monitor the fibroid by doing further scans in pregnancy. I would think that it should not cause problems.
