Pregnant, yeast infection, feels pressure on lower side. Could be bladder infection?

I am 19 weeks pregnant and I recently have been dealing with what I thought was a yeast infection . I took the pill the doctor prescribes for you and I started to feel much better. Today, I woke up with intense feeling of pressure on my lower left side, into my back (also feels like I held my pee too long, but I didn t). Is this related to my yeast infection at all? Could it just be the baby just on a nerve or could I have a bladder infection?

you didn't mentioned whether it is your first pregnancy or not.
The possibilities for your pain are,
as uterus grows it will become dextro rotated, so because of pulling of round ligament on left side pain may be felt on left side.
in case of prior cesarean section adhesions will be there which will cause pain with movement this can radiate to back.
As uterus grows it will exert pressure on bladder which may be responsible for your urinary symptoms.
Chances of urinary tract infection is also there.
You consult your gynecologist once get examined and go for urine analysis.
take care
