I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant and have developed an embarrassing problem. I'm getting occasional bowel urgency which means I can barely make it to the toilet in time.

Don't have IBS/IBD. Did used to get it rarely, although not so bad, around the time of my period. I assume it must be hormone related.

Am I alone? Any tips for management?

I asked the doctor about it today and she seemed unbothered. Said to do pelvic floor exercises and seek help if it doesn't resolve post birth.
