What kind of cm should you have after you ovulate? Or do you normally stay dry till AF arrives. The last few cycles I have been really dry at the end of my cycle but my cm is starting to pick up. I noticed what sort of looked like eggwhite cm on the tissue today when I wiped. It was a little thicker though I think. I still need to go mark it on my chart.

Discharge during the Luteal Phase should be substantially drier than the mucus observed leading up to your mucus Peak. For some women, that means total dryness. For others, it might be sticky or creamy or whatever - it just has to be significantly drier in comparison to your fertile time. This discharge is caused by tiny little fragments breaking off of the mucus plug that seals the cervix after ovulation, it's totally normal.

If what you observe is just as wet and lubricative as before ovulation, then there are a few questions to ask:
1. Is it seminal fluid?
2. Is it possible you misinterpreted your chart and ovulation hasn't actually happened yet (as when a woman "warms up" to ovulate and doesn't go through with it...many will assume the mere presence of EWCM automatically means ovulation happened, but it may not be so.)
