hello,
Breast lumps may occur normally in pregnancy, especially in the third trimester when the breasts are getting ready for lactation. Such masses are typically soft, mobile and occur in both breasts. They may be tender.so i think its normal . no need to worry. if you still in doubt you can consult your gynecologist. take care
