I'm a little farther along than that. The vaginal discharge usually increases involume during pregnancy, starting after implantation.
However, it remains white and thick throughoutunless something is wrong. I know any red blood in vaginal dischargeis dangerous, whether a sign of a miscarriage or uterine tear or something else only the will know. When you are pregnant, any bleeding is a reasonto go to the ER. Fortunately, I'm not seeing that type ofvaginal discharge. You'll normally see more white and thickvaginal discharge. Some women wear menstrual pads when pregnant to contain it. That sounds fishy to me. I didn't thinkI'd need diapers until after I had the kid.

there are any lesions, itching and other signsof a social disease, you have to talk to a . Technically, life is sexually transmitted. A sexually transmitted disease contractedbefore or during pregnancy puts the kid at risk, and it may be flaring up worse whilepregnant because pregnancy compromises the immune system. Yes, I'd talk to the if I was worriedabout it, but I am not. Then you'll just see more white and thickdischarge. It would have increased in volume
as the cervix thickened and rose up from thelow point after ovulation. But not as high as it would be if I wasn'tpregnant. That's where a lot of the mucus is comingfrom, but know that it will become dry if you're dehydrated just as when you'renot pregnant.
