well, I don't think the dr will give you one unless you have tested positive for a blood test. I would ask the dr for a blood test if you are a couple days late. They were able to give me an ultrasound on my 5th week of pregnancy, which was about a week after AF. The pee tests worked for me, so if you are stuck just buy one at the $ store, they are actually VERY good.

i actualy did buy one.... this is why dont like it... because..... alright... i was having s_x from april 16th-27th... for some reason for me my dates where off and i felt that i was supoe to get my af on the 18th..... well actualy on the 27th is when i took the test... i tooook two of them... i took the ept test tha one that is the didgital read out... i toook it and for some reason( i did everythin right) the sayings wernt coming up... well.... i egected the stick and i looked at the lines and the lines had two.. well a couple hrs later i tooook another one... and again it didn come up and i egeced the stick and it only had barly one line coming threrw...( conunsadently, i got what i thought was my period on the 2th but was just a day n ahalf of lil bleedng that can only see when i went to the restorom)... i have herd alot of stories on it and i would like to get a blood test and an ultrasiund but i have herd that the best way to see if you are is just seeing it live n your stomcah... and also for the blood test you have to wait a while and that is tooooooo long for me to waittttt

Well if you think waiting for a blood test takes a long time you are in for a big shock - until about 6 weeks you will only see the sac in an ultrasound - no baby until after that. Maybe you are really early on and your second urine sample didn't have enough hcg in it to pick up the second time. Do a test with your first wee in the morning and you should be right.

you'll be able to get a blood test WAY before you are able to get an ultrasound - my doctor is very generous with ultrasounds but I don't even think she would do one without a positive blood or urine test first.

I did 3 tests before I went to the dr. They weren't the digital ones, but the lines were so faint and took very long to show up, that I felt really unsure (I was also told I might not be able to have children, so I was pretty skeptical) Anyway, I went to the Dr. and their urine test came up quickly and definately. I was only 5 wks along (so only 3 wks. gestation) so it was really early when I started testing. I would say that just seeing a doctor will help set your mind at ease. Let them know your concerns, and if they are a good Dr. they will help you know for sure. I saw my first u/s at 10 weeks and the baby was definately there, but so small! I think it would be better to have a blood test if the urine tests aren't working. Good luck!
