Yeast infections can be a common thing in pregnancy. I'd def just call your health care provider and see what they say. As far as the pain - is it on the inside or outside. I had that with DS and I have started to get it once in awhile with this one. It's like the baby putting pressure on that area on the inside. Not sure if that's what you're experiencing but that has been my experience. You'll have an appt coming up soon, right? I'd either call or ask about it at your next appt. I hope you feel better soon!
I'd ask doctor to check- it might be BV- bacterial vaginosis- which is more common during pregnancy and treated differently then a yeast
I had it and I didnt even know - so got medication- and I still dont know if i have it but sometimes have odd discharge so Im wondering if I still do.
They say if you have SYMPTOMS like discharge, odor, itching, that thats when it needs treated so it wont cause any problems (preterm labor, ruptured membranes, blah blah)
So I'm gonna ask to get checked again next time, bleh! what fun!
But I havent experienced pain like you're talking about yet!
I have been taking Flora-Balance a lot during this pregnant, no yeast infections at all (from Vitacost). You may want to just add that in a few times a week. It's tasteless powder and works better than yogurt.

I don't have any advice for the yeast infection... I've actually never had one. I do have a TMI answer for the "kicked in the crotch" feeling. I get that after DH and I DTD. It's like it puts this crazy amount of pressure down there. I've always assumed it was from the increased blood flow, but really I don't know.
