Pregnant, small lump on shin, no bruising, larger one appeared on other leg. Due to pregnancy?

Hi I am 29 weeks pregnant and over a month ago I noticed a small lump on my right shin. Just normal skin color, no bruising, but it hurt to the touch. I thought maybe I had hit it on something , but it never went away. Now a few weeks ago a larger one appeared on the other leg. This one is more noticeable because of its size and is a bit painful, but still no bruising. Is this something that could have to do with pregnancy?

Welcome to HCM forum

Pregnancy can cause oedema over legs which is generalized and not a local swelling.

Varicose veins can be another cause of swelling but in that you can see the veins which are bluish in color.
I think this is a local muscular condition or can be due to allergy and skin rash.
I hope you are not doing waxing or using any creams or razor for hair removal as they can cause skin bumps.
It is better to consult a dermatologist.
Best wishes
