Hello. I welcome you to icliniq.
Well there are few possibilities here.
Since you have constipation since birth, there is possibility of Hirschsprung disease.
The Second you might have functional constipation, or pelvic dyssynergia. The later is most likely. The pelvic dyssynergia is basically an incordinated mechanism of pooping. This can worse in pregancy due to pressure of gravid uterus over the rectum and large bowel. Since you already used laxatives which would only cause liquification of the stools and can lead to spurious diarrhea /false diarehea.
Colonoscopy is not recommeded in the pregnancy unless absolute neccessary. You can do two things.
You would need some testing but let the pregancy go on safely. Let me know if you have some basline investigations in the pregancy? like thyroid, complete blood count, and liver function tests? if already done, upload the tests. Otherwise it is wise to get them tested.
