Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in your spine can be due to postural changes related to the pregnancy or due to a spinal pathology like disc prolapse. You need to take adequate rest and adequate calcium supplements to prevent any further degradation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
