Sore fatty skin at bottom of bump?

Does anyone else have this or know what it is? I'm plus size (uk 18) and 37 weeks pregnant but the bottom of bump is sore and a little lumpy. It's just sore in the skin (feels like a sensitive bruise)

I wonder if my fat has just shoved it way down there (I can't see but DH says there is no rash etc) or whether it's something else?

I did attempt to ask the doctor (under consultant care) but she was junior and kept talking to me about my pelvis even though I repeated several times it was my skin not pelvis (after the 4th time of telling her and her not listening I gave in!)

I had this and it turned into cellulitis after my CS.

I had this when i was pregnant with dd.

Its basically just fatty tissue and it went around 6-8 weeks after birth
