In brief: Possibly

Vitamin d is an important co-factor in calcium absorption from the GI tract.
If you are too low on vitamin d (pregnant or otherwise), you may not be absorbing enough calcium from your diet; this can lead to several problems. Taking a vitamin d supplement is relatively inexpensive and easy; talk with your physician about a proper dosage.
