Please call your OB: Not normal at 33 weeks, you need evaluation as that should not happen at 33 weeks.

Concerning...: In the presence of increased mucous discharge and blood, one has to think that this might represent a change in your cervix. Given that you are only 33 weeks pregnant, this certainly must be checked by your OB provider. Blood tends to tun into a brownish discharge as it evolves over time.
