17 weeks and having pain ...

I am a first time mom and have had issues with bowel movement and am currently taking 200 mg of colace, miralax and 3 capsules of fiber supplement every night and am still in pain when I have a bowel movement. Also I have had sharp pain and had to use Phillips 2 times in the last month, which keeps me from being able to got to my job.  Any ideas? Maybe exercise?
