I feel the beginnings of one and I am 38 weeks. I hope I don't give birth while I have this!!

I never have yeast infections - maybe once in the last 10 years or so - but I have been battling a chronic one this entire pregnancy. I am pretty sure it is an external infection and it is just constantly irritated by the amount of discharge I have! Ugh. It comes and goes...my MW gave me a prescription but I just couldn't bring myself to use it but perhaps I should...
Lately I have been switching between one drop of tea tree oil in olive oil or diluted vinegar but because the humidity level down there is not going down it feels like a never ending battle!
It is perhaps the only reason I am anxious to get this pregnancy over...and I sure hope the baby doesn't end up with thrush!
My last baby and I developed thrush, so this time around I'm giving baby Nature's Way Children's formula probiotics almost immediately after birth; I want baby to start off colonized with good bacteria, and while I'm trying to make sure my body has the same positive bacterial flora, I don't really feel like chancing it. Thrush was AWFUL.
