One would need to hear the spoken intonation to be sure of the punctuation. Do you have a link to the video?

It is dialogue, so anything goes that makes it sound the way you want. If that's what A said, then that's what A said. The punctuation is OK the way it is.

Given how she says it, I would probably punctuate it like this:

"Letting it out means making it bigger. So it'll fit my mother."

"So" expresses purpose (i.e. purpose of making it bigger).

A comma after "so" is wrong (given how she says it). The choice of punctuation where I have placed the full stop is open to opinion. A comma seems too weak (given the length of pause), but a dash or ellipsis (...) would be another option.
