Word changes layouts. That's what it does. Send it to someone else, buy a new printer, upgrade, or make a PDF: text reflows, by design. Fiddle with it until you get a PDF how you want it, then the PDF won't change. Or make the original in an app which respects page layout.

How exactly are you converting the Word file to PDF?

Do you have Adobe Acrobat, if so, which version? And what version of Office?

That is an internal function of Word, not related to Acrobat. You should be using the PDFMaker plugin under the Acrobat ribbon, or the Adobe PDF printer.

Select the "Adobe PDF" printer as your default printer in the Windows control panel. Once you do that, reformatting the Word document should use the information from the PDF printer, and when you then actually print (or convert to PDF) to this printer, Word should no longer reformat the document.
