Richard: a lump by her nipple does not concern me much.  Swelling of the breast tissue before giving birth may be the cause.  Pretty sure it is not a puppy in that location.  At 2 years I would not worry much about breast cancer either.  A veterinarian would have to see the spot to be sure.  continue to watch her carefully and I hope her delivery is without problems.
