In brief: Yes
Mild neck pain is very common often in the morning after waking up.
Most women have muscle strains especially in the 3rd trimester. But if it is severe and you experience other symptoms then it can be a sign of something more.

In brief: Yes
For some pregnant women neck pain can become a constant companion.
There are about eighty percent of pregnant women that complain of neck pain. During pregnancy your body releases the hormone relaxin. This hormone relaxes your joint and ligaments in preparation for birth. This is for the pelvis to relax for childbirth, but this also relaxes all joints and ligaments in your body.
