You are probably right, it is probably a sigh. My oldest dogs does this many times a day. It sounds like a morbid moan, but he is just very vocal. He is stretching. Think about when you have a real good stretch yourself, sometimes you might let out a little moan, well we usually control it, but our vocal k-9's are just louder and are not concerned that someone may hear them. :o)

I don't know how long you have had her, but you will probably hear many sounds from her, as she sounds to a vocal dog, like my Hector. I swear sometimes he is trying to talk. :o)

My dog has done this a long time.
She lays there and then when she gets ready to snooze she moans and rolls.
It is soothing for her. Kind of like me when I yawn when I get sleepy.
