What is the excessive sticky vaginal discharge during pregnancy?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant. I have been feeling wetter than usual down there discharge wise. I'm also abit concerned as I have on occasion recently been having a thick sticky cream/light yellow and occasionally light green discharge from my vagina. It resembles snot. Is this normal? I have been reading about mucus plugs and am worried it may be this?

OBGYN 's  Response
During pregnancy some amount of increased vaginal discharge can be seen.
But as you are having discharge with altered color, better to consult your doctor once and get examined.
By clinical examination and if needed vaginal swab culture and sensitivity, the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.
Take care.
