Hi Anon,

Discharge during pregnancy is absolutely normal, in fact some women have even more discharge during pregnancy than they do when they're not pregnant. However, there is one thing that may be concerning and that's losing your mucus plug. A mucus plug may be clear, slightly pink or blood tinged in color. It may be stringy mucus or sticky discharge.

If your discharge seems normal in color, then there is no cause for concern. You should call your health care provider immediately if your discharge suddenly becomes bright red and the amount is more than an ounce (about two tablespoons).

Hope this helps and Congratulations on your pregnancy!
