Normal: Discharge changes a lot in pregnancy, especially in last trimester. The discharge can become copious... Sometimes so much that you think you might have broke your water. It can be thick or thin, white or clear, mucousy. Bottom line, if you keep leaking make sure to go to l&d to make sure your water didn't break. Otherwise, know that abnormal amounts of discharge and different textures normal.
