No usual: There is no "normal" consistency across all women. What is normal for you is normal. There is no way to tell from vaginal mucous if you are pregnant. Women retain water near to ovulation through their period in preparation for becoming pregnant. Your symptoms may be that, or a true pregnancy If you have been having unprotected sex. Take a pregnancy test if your period is late.
