It could be genetics. Females in my family on my mom's side all have wide hips and deep curve-I could feel like I'm laying flat and my fiancee can put his muscular arm right under me. It just got worse as I got pregnant and hurts now that I carry her so much. I have to lean back far while holding her just so I don't tip over. It's hard and don't know if this helps any but this is my experience on it.

I am a Physical Therapist. There can be a number of reasons that you have in increased lumbar lordosis. I highly recommend that you see your physician and seek a referral to a local PT. Uncorrected it can lead to significant low back pain, degeneration of the discs and even bulging discs. Being 22, you should have great success with targeted exercise. Good luck!

Thanks. I took a look at the link and it sounds exactly like my back. I was just trying to find out, because I am currently trying to lose weight and it is so hard to crunches or anything that involves me laying on my back on a flat hard surface.

Depends if your currently pregnant then its your muscles ( round ligaments ) that have relaxed and your back adjusted to accompany the added weight. When the muscles start to relax you also get the preggie waddle as I call it, it's your bodies center readjusting.
