    Hi ladies!

    First off, Lots and lots of sticky baby dust to all!

    Here's my story: My DH(Scott;36 almost 37) and I(Kristin;23) have been married since May 2010, trying for baby number one for over a year now. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS but the doctor I went to said that I wasn't a candidate for Metformin cause my blood levels were normal. In February I bled basically the entire month and my OBGYN gave me hormone medication to stop the bleeding which helped a lot. Come April I had a normal AF lasting the regular 6-7 days. DH and I BD around the time I calculated my ovulation which would of been between April 17-20. Now May passed without AF showing herself and June 3/4 is when I normally start. I have taken multiple pregnancy test all showing negative. But I have been having a few symptoms like cramps in my lower abdominal area and on my sides, heartburn/indigestion non stop, queasy on and off, mild headaches, a roller coaster of mood changes, an itchy stomach, constipation/diarrhea (sorry TMI), hot flashes(which is odd for me cause I am always cold) and very little tingly of the bbs. I don't know what is going on. I calculated that if I am pregnant I would be 8 weeks but wouldn't a test be able to pick up that hormone or could it still be early? DH said we should wait to go to the doctor until I am at least 2 cycles late. Can I request an ultrasound to not only check the status of my cycts on my ovary but check if there is a baby in there? Sorry it's so long I just need some advise.

    I would personally go to the doctor and get checked out. If it would put you at ease then it's worth it.

    hun if you were 8 wks it should show on a hpt. Maybe you ovulated later than normal?

    Have to agree with this. HCG usually peaks between 8-12 weeks, so it should be showing up by now as you don't need a high level in your body to be detected. There are instances of HCG not showing up on HPTs until well into a pregnancy, but it's pretty uncommon.

    Are you charting at all? I have PCOS as well and recently got back into charting. Last cycle, I ovulated on CD28 - 8 days later than I thought based on CM (what I was previously using as an ovulation guide) and 2 weeks later than a "standard" cycle. It's not uncommon for some women with PCOS to go months without ovulating.

    If you're concerned, I would go to the doctor now. Don't know if they'd agree to an ultrasound without any other pregnancy confirmation first, but they should at least run blood tests. Good luck. :hugs:

    Do you think that I could request an ultrasound to be done?

    Well I bought a BBT but I was told to wait until the first day of AF to start using it.... Is that correct information or should I start tomorrow?
