LP/DPO days?

How do you normally feel during your LP/DPO days? Excluding the last day or two when you may be getting AF symptoms? I've had wacky cycles since going off BCP and last cycle looked the most normal on a chart. But it seems I had a large cyst that cycle and was having everything from twinges to pain from 2DPO till AF (I was in tears one day, not fun!). This cycle is looking OK on my chart (despite yesterday's 9DPO 0.2C temp dip which turned into today's temp spike - highest temp so far this cycle). I'm wondering if I ever have a normal LP how it will feel. HOW DO YOUR LPs FEEL? This time things were "quiet" until 6DPO when I started to get twinges in my uterus and a little bit in my ovaries. One literally made me gasp - not painful, just intense. I've had on-and-off twinges since then. Today at 10DPO I'm feeling crampy (FX that I'll have a 12 day LP so I'm hoping AF isn't too close right now). I'm confident I'm not PG though (scant sticky CM, bbs feel normal, etc). Wondering if I'm getting closer to normal.

 I honestly dont feel anything, apart from the absence of CM and the achy boobs like 2days to AF. All aches and stuff just magically disappear after i O. I only felt different this time because of the BFP, and that was what clued me in in the first place.

How long since coming off BC for you?

I've been off BCP since Jan 31, 2013. Over 6 months! This chart was looking beautiful until yesterday's slight drop and today's spike. Lucky you having breaks after O! It was nice to have a break from 1-6DPO, because I feel as though I've always had some ache since going off BCP.

 My LPs were usually pretty uneventful. No real symptoms with ovulation or physical changes felt afterwards. My temps would always follow the same general pattern - peaking around 8 DPO and then very slowly decreasing until they fell off a cliff the day or two before AF (my LP was 16 days long). That was actually one of the first indications that I was pregnant. My temps did not decrease at 8 DPO like they normally did, and were actually higher than they had ever been.

My AF symptoms would normally begin 1-2 days before she arrived. The cycle I was pregnant, I started having different symptoms - food aversions, light nosebleeds, breast tenderness - about 5-6 days before AF was scheduled to arrive. 

Not sure if this helps :-)

Unfortunately my LP sucks! Especially since being on clomid. A few days after O my breasts get fuller and I start cramping and feeling pulling in my pelvis. Within a week or so I get nauseous, with occassional vomiting, and this cycle by nipples got super sore and sensitive around 5-6 dpo. Yeah, fun times.

It does help hearing it. I think I'm still a ways off from some idea of a "normal" cycle if my LP's are plagued by symptoms but no PG (I haven't tested this cycle, but I'm really confident I'm not). :-( KWoodrn that sounds like early PG symptoms so it must be tough to go through that every month. But I'd say I've had things that look like early PG symptoms every LP too and it just gets exhausting listening to your body, doesn't it?

It is so mentally draining. No matter how much I try to tell myself "it's the clomid" everytime a new symtom arises I think I must be prego. The nausea started the second month on 7-8dpo which really screwed with me. This month the only new thing is the serious nipple soreness and the last few days i've been very tired but I'm fairly sure I'm not pg.  Only on more cycle on it though so I'll survive
