You're right : Due to the changes that happen in pregnancy, your posture and spinal alignment can change. Sometimes, if that is not corrected, it can cause long lasting pain. I recommend the exercises that can be found in robin mckenzie's book, fix your own back. If that does not help, a good osteopathic medical doctor who specializes in gentle manipulation can help improve your spinal alignment and back pain.

Low back pain: Not uncommon. After evaluation by your doctor rehab may be considered if appropriate.
