Hi Cheryl. That really sucks...yeast infections are no fun at all. It is quite common for pregnant women to develop a yeast infection, probably due to our rapidly changing hormone levels and our lowered immune system. It is VERY important that you see your Dr. though, and get a confirmed diagnosis as thrush shares the symptoms of other v____al infections that can be dangerous to you and your baby. Your Dr. will be able to perscribe a mild topical cream to ease your discomfort - you should NOT take anything oral as it does get into the blood stream. The best home remedy is still plain yogurt. Avoid processed and sugary foods. But don't rely soley on these home remedies - do see your Dr. Good luck, and I hope this gets better for you soon!

With my last pregnancy I had this problem and my Dr. told me I could use the over the counter creams if I wanted. They worked for me.

I forgot to add you do want to treat it though as it has been linked to miscarriage or preterm labor.
