The increased estrogen associated with pregnancy causes the increased vaginal discharge.  If it is mucus-like, there is probably nothing to worry about.  If you were my patient, I would do a speculum exam to be certain that there is no dilation of your cervix.
I would also do an ultrasound to be sure there is adequate fluid.  If all the tests looked good, I would chalk it up to increased hormones.  I would ask you to continue to monitor the discharge however, and report any changes.
Congratulations on your boy!
Good luck!
