  • does one of you get too much yeast in your diet? some people have a hard time processing yeast, with your body in overdrive making a baby maybe you have become more sensitive to yeast.

  • yes, very common. It's all the extra moisture. start wearing pantyliners, that will help cut down on the extra moisture. don't forget to tell your doctor about them, they can get you a prescription for them .

  • True, True. I had to deal with them just the same. I started taking cranberry softgels to promote a healthy urinary tract and haven't had one since. I can't stand the taste of the juice! You can get them just about anywhere. Just start taking with your prenatals and you will notice the difference in about a week.

  • If you are having sex while you have a yeast infection, you may be giving it to your husband and he keeps passing it on to you. Men can and do get yeast infections.
