What could this stiff lump underneath the middle side of jaw be ?

I have this lump under my chin not exactly on my neck where my throat is but close by. It's more underneath in the middle side of my right jaw l. And I am aware that pregnancy does not cause lymph nodes and because also I never had this before until now and I am currently 30 weeks and 6 days pregnant. But I'm not sure what it is and why it is there. It's like a hard stiff ball.

Are you feeling a bit run down? Sounds similar to what I get sometimes when I'm about to come down with something but my body is fighting it off before it turns into a fully blown cold/infection

Hi, could just be a currently swollen lymph node not caused by pregnancy (as true, pregnancy doesn't cause those) but if you are fighting any type of infection, a lymph node can swell.  It's cold and flu season and all . . .  At your next doctor's visit, ask your doctor to feel it.  But honestly, I would not worry about it at this point.  good luck hon
