This is normal, I've been getting it every few days the last week. It is scary when it first happens, but it's a normal reaction (even ppl without CD).
Your intestines are inflamed and mucus comes out as a reaction. If it gets severe or blood happens call your doctor asap, but next time you see your doc advise that you had this happen. I have my CD in my terminal ileum too, and was on entocort and pentasa. Recently taken off it, and put onto pred and back on the pentasa as it helped.

Feel better! :)

I agree with thenay. But wanted to add that the yellow color could be caused by bile. Especially is you are having alot of D. Good Luck!
