  • Have you tried to contact the doctor? Call the local urgent care or ER and ask a professional this question. Pregnancy is different for everyone and only the professionals can really tell you exactly what's going on.

  • You probably just put pressure on your pelvic floor and now it is aching if it doesn't go away then maybe call your provider

  • Take a stool softener and stop straining. You irritate the uterus when you have to strain. If the pressure does not go away in a few minutes call your OB/midwife/doula.

  • You shouldnt have strained yourself that makes thing kind of worse if you couldnt go you should start adding fiber to your diet if your trying to eat healthy .
