In brief: 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.
