She’s Araneus diadematus, a Cross Orbweaver. Thank you for making a first guess. Both species have projections (bumps) in the same places. It is more noticeable on A. gemma. A.diadematus has a horizontal white broken line in the “cross” on the abdomen. Yours has added difficulty because her abdomen in rumpled from stretching to hold maturing eggs then contracting after ovipositing the eggs. It gave her a humped/ bent appearance.
