Pregnant, have swelling in the supraclavicular area, noticeable only on touching. Alarming?

I am a 32 year old 19 week pregnant female who is 5 8 anmd abput 290 lbs. Yesterday I noticed swelling in the supraclavicular area more pronounced on my right side but on both. It is not hard, it is not raised off the body. I can only notice it when i touch it. It does not hurt. I do not feel sick or tired expect for the normal pregnancy tiredness. Should I be worried?

Any swelling in that area needs to be explored further to know the cause. You should see a physician for a complete evaluation to rule out any organic cause for the swelling. It may be a simple lipomatous change, but, it is good to be cautious than be sorry afterward. Wish you good health.
