I'm 34 weeks preg and have developed lumps on my armpits, one lump on each armpit, it is not painful or visible , i can feel them on when I press myself . What is it? is it related to the fact that I'm pregnant. I started to realize this after I shaved.

It is probably an extension of your breast tissue. As` the breasts enlarge in pregnancy, so does this 'breast tail'.
