  • I would go to your Dr so that he can give you what he recommends is safe for the baby and to ensure that it is a yeast infection and a different type that would need a different cream/pill to clear it up. Good luck

  • A lot of discharge can be normal in pregnancy . I don't remember what it's called.... but it's whitish and milky looking. If it was a yeast infection which is also common you would know! You would be itching like crazy. Neither is a concern for the baby but I would check with your OB before choosing a treatment if it is yeast.

  • I am 32 weeks and I have had a lot of discharge so far. It's your body's way of keeping bacteria out of your vagina. If it starts itching, I would go to the doctors.
