Fourteen Weeks Pregnant Medicine Mixup

Patient : I am extremely nervous because I am 14 weeks pregnant and was told to use a Monistat cream by my doctor on the labia for some irritation that I've been experiencing. I thought my clotrimazole betamethasone and dipropionate cream that she had prescribed to me for a similar previous condition before I was pregnant was the same thing. I applied the dosage twice--once in the morning and once at night before I realized my mistake. I immediately stopped using it, but I am nervous that I did damage to my baby. Will doing this cause harm to my baby even just for the two times I did it? I cannot sleep at night over this! Please help!
