Hello...
Jelly discharge during pregnancy is primarily the effect of the increased estrogen levels as well as the increased blood flow in the pelvic region. As a result of these changes, the mucus glands in the cervix start working extra and produce more mucus that appears in the form of white jelly discharge during pregnancy. This is the result of the combination of cervical secretions and dead vaginal and cervical cells as well as the natural flora found in the vagina. As long as there is clear thick jelly like discharge during pregnancy, more often than not, there is nothing to fear... brown discharge is discharge tinged with old blood. For whatever reason, some blood in your uterus took longer to come out — and as it gets older, it turns brown. That means you end up with either brown spotting or a brownish-colored discharge... So, i would suggest once have a USG and consult your doctor..
