I don't have many details on what happened exactly, but one of my nephews got constipated like this as a baby and they took him to the emergency room when nothing else worked. If it's been four or five days, she's in pain, or her abdomen is visibly swollen I think it would be reasonable to take her to emergency rather than wait until Monday.
