I've never really had this issue in my previous pregnancies, but a few weeks ago it got so bad that I was in real pain. I ended up taking Miralax because I couldn't stand it anymore and I was desperate. It worked within a couple days and I haven't had to take anything again. It was seriously bad! I hope you get some relief.
I debated on drinking a cup of coffee. That seems to work fairly well (I've had two cups my entire pregnancy). I'd rather drink a little bit of coffee than take medicine anyway.

Thanks for the tip. I might make a fruit smoothie in a bit and see if that seems to get things moving.
