Posture During Pregnancy
When a woman is pregnant, her pelvis begins to tip backwards as the baby develops, to balance the forward weight of the expanding uterus. As the pubic and tailbones move backward, the arch in the lower back increases. As the lower back arch increases, so does the curve in the upper back or thorax.  
 
The shoulders and head move forward and the chest collapses to balance the changing weight. All these changes can increase stress on the spine, exaggerating its natural S shape. Other muscles and ligaments can also be strained.

Reasons of Pregnancy Back Pain
There are several causes of back pain during pregnancy. They all increase back strain and result in impaction of nerve roots. One of the main causes of increased back strain during pregnancy is weight gain. During a normal pregnancy, women gain from 25 to 35 pounds. The center of gravity shifts during pregnancy. This can cause changes in posture and pain in the lower back as a result.

Symptoms of Pregnancy Back Pain
Back pain during pregnancy in most cases occurs in the center of the lumbar region of the spine. But in some cases, it may be located lower and on the sides. The location of pain depends on which nerve root is affected.
 
Back pain during pregnancy may be relieved by rest, and is usually made worse by movement. Very often nerve root compression occurs due to prolonged sitting.
