In brief: Yes

Unfortunately the answer is yes.
The hormones of pregnancy make your nipples more sensitive and more prominent in preparation for breastfeeding.

In brief: Possibly yes

Because of mass hormone productions, your breasts will enlarge and yes, your nipples will enlarge and become sensitive as well.
There are maternity padded bras available that will hopefully alleviate some discomfort. It will pass after the pregnancy.
