I don't know if you've tried this home remedy, but, have you applied yogurt topically to the, er... area?
Thanks, willo. I did try that--no good, unfortunately. I think this has been hanging around for a while before I realized what it was. The nurse at my birth center said Monistat is fine during pregnancy, and as much as I prefer more natural remedies, I think I'll have to go with that. I am waiting until after my prenatal appt. tomorrow, though.
Thanks also to all who have provided encouraging heartbeat anecdotes. I am really hoping to hear it tomorrow! After that, it'll be time to start breaking the news to friends and family. Yay!
