Lymph nodes the size of a pea is at the normal resting size & not suggestive of any condition. If they are manipulated or starting to sift and clean body serum, they can be sore. They are often detected in the neck and head area where they are not covered by muscle of fat. I wouldn't lose sleep about these. Mention them to your doc when you go for prenatal visits.

You can watch and wait and discuss it with your doctor at the next visit. You may feel the nodes every couple of weeks, if any of the lymph glands doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor. Wish you good health!
