In brief: Breast lumps/preg

Pregnancy is a confounding factor when dealing with different medical diagnoses.
Hormonal shifts of pregnancy will affect the breast and cause different symptoms (changes in exam /pain). Fibrocystic disease is very common among young women, but all abnormalities need to be followed up on. Whether its repeat exams, u/s, diagnostic tests that are safer in the latter stages- follow up is the key.

In brief: Pretty confident

The highest likelihood for diffuse thickening/nodules in your age group, especially without family history, is fibrocystic disease.
The most important thing now is followup to make sure everything stays stable; if it enlarges, the likely diagnosis shifts. This also protects you from unnecessary biopsies, which have their own complications.
