    I have IBS aswell, but I got cramps from IBS in 1st and 2nd trimester that were that painful, it was close to labour pains.

    I'd assume you're getting them from IBS and that hopefully you're going to go to the loo soon. But you're going to have to go back to the doctors, not healthy to be 12 days without a bowel movement, you don't want to get compacted.

    I know you'll beable to get an enema when in labour, they still offer those to ladies to clear out their bowels before labour. Mine clear out themselves natually.

    My IBS is different from yours. Mine makes me go 3-4 times a day every 3-4 days. Where as my mum's is like yours, she can go days/weeks unless she takes something to help it.

    Have you tried drinking alot of fresh orange juice? Do you have a certain food that makes your IBS play up? Mine is beef mince, I can't eat it or I'm in agony, but I know it makes me 'go loo'. Or a strong curry will usually make me go too.

    I was same, it's worse with this baby than the last two, that the cramps were so bad I wasn't sure I'd beable to tell the difference. But with contractions they grow to a peak and release, lower back pain and pain in the bump. Where as my IBS ones are pretty much a constant pain.

    I was also in the same situation as you a few days ago. I was getting such severe pains from my IBS that I was so concerned whether I was dismissing labour pains to a problem which has been so ongoing and painful. My differ from yours, I have loose bowels as opposed to costipation. You must be in so much pain, espeically from movement too. I really feel for you. I would go back to your Dr and stress the pain you are in. Drink plenty of water too! Sorry I'm not much help. X
