I got the feeling that this was some type of a hemorrhoid. The reason why is because they speak about constipation (risk factor for hemorrhoids) and the bigger give away is that this patient is pregnant. The uterus can compress the IVC when it gets large enough and lead to blood stasis behind the obstruction.
