Vaginal Infections, Vaginitis or Monilia (Cause of Thrush)

I am getting a white discharge. Do I have an infection

This is known as leucorrhoea and in a normal effect of pregnancy. The discharge will increase until delivery, so it is advisable to wear a sanitary pad during the last few months. Keep your genitals clean and dry and avoid tight clothing, deodorants, soaps, bubble baths and perfumes. Do not douche. If the discharge turns yellowish, greenish or very thick, notify your doctor immediately.
 

What is meant by vaginitis, and what are its symptoms

Vaginitis is a vaginal infection that is common in pregnancy.  This problem is sometimes also called yeast infection because it is caused by a type of yeast called "Monila".  Its symptoms are itching, burning, and a vaginal discharge (like white cottage cheese).
 

Could my having vaginitis be harmful to the baby

Yes. "Monila" in the vagina can be picked up by the baby during birth and affect its mouth , producing a condition called "thrush" (in the form of a white coating on the baby's mouth and tongue).
