hello madam,
welcome to the forum,
congratulations for completing 23 weeks normally.
pregnancy in a fibroid uterus is a high risk case.
the fibroid becomes very vascular and increase in size during pregnancy.
the preferred and suggest way for your delivery should be an elective Cesarean section.

after pregnancy and delivery the size and vascularity of the fibroid decreases with time which can be monitored by USG. following which surgical removal of the fibroid should be thought of.

all be best
take care.
