I thought if trying some of those little yogurt/ probiotic things with the added good bacteria today however i didn't buy them because well...are they safe to take during pregnancy? Sounds stupid but I'm really not sure? One version had the word 'fermented' on it which is what made me second guess..??

Yes they are safe but I would steer away from yakult if you want the benefit of probiotic cultures. Yakult has sugar in it which supports the growth of the harmful gut bacteria anyway so it's really a waste a money. A good quality probiotic tablet or powder from the chemist might be more bang for your buck, or even just a nice sugar free quality yoghurt.

First thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, I drink a yakult and take an inner health plus tablet.
I had terrible stomach pains last year following 2 rounds of antibiotics. It really upset my system, for AGES - about 7 months! It is much better since I started taking these probiotics.
It doesn't say on the bottle not to take in pregnancy and the inner health website says it's fine - plus I have googled safety of probiotics in pregnancy and it seems fine.
I keep meaning to check with my ob but forgetting.

Yakult is clinically proven to be beneficial. However the clinically proven dose is 10x the 60ml doses we get here. Daily. Yakult is 100ml in other countries. Either way it's not cost effective to drink $7 of Yakult a day and the sugar is way too high.
I've researched probiotics a bit and there's nothing that's cheap and works. Eg yoghurt is a waste of time if you want proven results. The doses are way too low once again. probiotic tablets may be a better choice, but we didn't want yet another daily tablet.
