In brief: Yeast and fetus
When you are pregnant - the uterus is a "sealed" container - so the only way a fetus would be affected is by absorbing any medication through the maternal blood stream via the placenta.
Topical antifungal creams are generally safe to use in pregnancy since very little adsorption of the medicine occurs. But before using any meds while pregnant check with your doctor.
