hi Mary,thanks for query.As the pregnancy advances the weight of uterus increase and this leads to stretching of its support and backache due to this.Still to be on safer visit your doctor and rule out the possibility of urine infection.Take proper rest,do not lift heavy weight and avoid excessive forward bending for some time.You can apply local analgesics over the area.
wishing you good health.
