Fibroids are growths in the uterus. From what you have described, they are very big in your sister. They can cause problems at the time of delivery as she may need a caesarean. This might be more difficult becuase of the fibroid in the way. If the placenta is implanted over the fibroid, it can interfere with blood supply to the baby, but this is not very common
