Can taking antibiotics while pregnant give you a yeast infection in the intestinal tract?

In brief: Yeast infection

Yeasts are normal in the GI tract and seldom of concern for producing infection there.
Antibiotic therapy, by altering normal bacterial flora, can allow yeast to overgrow in other areas, and produce vulvovaginitis, etc.. Be more specific about what the issues are and ask your question again. Good luck.
