I'm not sure these timelines are accurate. Someone on forum said it's based on people who edit their timelines.

Some people don't edit after initial input of info

Mine went from

March 2 thru March 27

March 21 thru April 14th

Now it's

April 8 thru May 11th

Got my Wife added to my checking account and received her debit card today. My bank, USAA allowed her to fax the signed w-8 form and the signiture card. Many banks require your spouse to be in the US to sign the forms. This will help with proof of bonafide marriage for the NVC and interview stage.

I wouldn't worry too much about your case not showing on USCIS. Ours isn't either, it doesn't mean they are not working on them at all. Although 2 mos may be a bit short to check, but maybe in a couple weeks you might want to just call them. Have you seen this thread?
