Can being pregnant and sitting at a desk for 8 hours cause your hips to be permanently bigger?

In brief: No

I've not heard anything like that! you may end up gaining weight throughout your pregnancy that you will have troubles "shaking off" after you deliver. This may cause you to have permanently bigger hips, but it has nothing to do with sitting for 8 hours.
