I am currently 28 weeks pregnant and 4 days ago

Patient

Q: I am currently 28 weeks pregnant and 4 days ago felt nausious and stomach cramps. Realised I was constipated and over the last few days have tried movicol, coloxyl and now microlax enema (on doctors advice). I have used the enema twice in last 2 days as it helped me to have a bowel movement but still having bad cramps and cant go by myself. I am drinking plenty of water and my diet is good. What is the next step. What do I do now? The cramping is so bad I have had 4 days off work and cannot do anything but cry!
