My doctor has also started me on folic acid today once I told him about the pink discharge.....which I haven't had since this morning. I've been dry for the most part. Normal?

Hello....I'm 6dpo.....and when I woke up this morning....I wiped and had a light pink tinge on the tissue paper but haven't had anything since. I was told that when you're pregnant you have some kind of milky or creamy discharge but i don't. Just sore boobs, mood swings, sleepy during the day but insomnia at night and light headaches and I can't forget the cramping. My basal temp has been running about 98.8 for 3 days now. Are these good signs of having another little one?
