Sensitive nipples

I need advice please. I had my period from 9 - 14 July. I should have ovulated on 21 / 22 July (I have my periods every 26 days). I am quite regular. So according to me, my next period is only due on 3 August. Now my question is, for the last 3 days I have been having extremely sensitive nipples. My breast themselves hurt a bit, but they also look a bit more swolen to me. But the nipples are so sensitive that I can't touch them. I've never had sensitive nipples during ovulation? Could it be the ovulation thats making them sensitive? I do get sore breasts before my period, but then the breast hurt and not really the nipples.

Many women have sore breasts around the time of ovulation.
