FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether terconazole vaginal will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication. It is not known whether terconazole passes into breast milk. Do not use terconazole vaginal without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Pregnancy Category C Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.

If you don't feel comfortable using it, then don't. Usually they prescribe the one time pill, but I can't remember if that's safe for pregnancy.
Eat a lot of yogurt and drink plenty of water, that's your best bet.
