Negative pregnancy tests

My husband and I had unprotected sex recently - on the 4th to be exact.  I've taken two pregnancy tests thus far, one on the 17th and one yesterday, both negative.  I have been diagnosed with PCOS and had been having a typical menstrual cycle from January of this year until May.  In June we bought a house and I had no period in June or July.  Yesterday I experienced some spotting without any sort of cramping - I usually get a very tight sensation in my pelvic/rectal area that indicates I'm about to start bleeding.  That didn't happen this time.  It was a light pink with some egg whiteish discharge.  No bleeding today, so I started to suspect if it could be implantation spotting. I've also been feeling nauseous lately, (though I attributed that to the fact that I recently stopped eating grains and sugar) and a few other symptoms that could go either way (fatigue, diarrhea, dizziness this morning). 

I had been tracking my BBT but stopped when we moved.  I started again on the 10th and it's been low, but rising.  However, having PCOS and not tracking regularly make it difficult for me to decipher this.  I have an appointment with my midwife in a week and haven't been able to get ahold of her thus far, so I thought I'd inquire here. 

So two questions: Is it possible that I could be pregnant despite the negative pregnancy tests.  I know the longer you wait the higher the HCG levels will be, but not having a regular period to guage when I should test makes me unsure of when I should accept a negative result as truth or when I should wait and try again.  And two, my BBT was 97.4 this morning.  Previously it had been in the 96's which is typical for me.  Is it possible to have conceived with a BBT that low or does it have to do with the relationship to your baseline temp?
