In brief: No

They are most likely your taste buds (circumvallate papillae in this case).

I agree. But bumps on the gingiva, especially red swellings may be a sign of "pregnancy tumors" - these are really an inflamation of the gingiva, a granuloma, not a tumor. they are related to "pregnancy gingivitis"

In brief: No

Probably inflamed taste buds in the back of the tongue due to unrelated reasons , but no relation to pregnancy.
