Hi!
If you were my patient I would have some questions for you about the discharge--I would want to know if your water has broken.  If so, you woudl have copious clear watery discharge.  If the discharge is more whiteish and mucousy, it could be normal, or it could indicate that you are starting to dilate.  Whatever the case, you should probably have it checked out to be sure it isn't your water.
Good luck!

Well there is a mucus plug most women lose within a month before labor and the baby comes.  But also being pregnant important having number five, I've always had more discharge during pregnancy.  Everyone is different explain it to your dr. They can better tell u. If they think it was your mucus plug good luck :)
