    All I could find was this, but it is based on a question from a person who didn't state whether they were pregnant or not:

    "Stool normally contains small amounts of mucus. Mucus In Your Stool may be a problem: what is color of mucus and is there any blood in stool. Are there any other symptoms? If amount of mucus is increased, that might be a symptom of variety of causes: irritable bowel syndrome or ulcerative colitis. Cause for Mucus In Your Stool might be bacterial infection or anal fissure. I think you should see your doctor."

    Danni, have you had a cold or anything lately to make you a bit stuffy? I haven't noticed it with myself, but with the kids they tend to have mucous in their poo from swallowing phlegm when they are sick.

    If the mucous is still there after the cold has gone you should see your doctor
