The most common reason for ultrasound in early pregnancy is to determine how far along you are and figure out a due date.

Most commonly, a doctor will do a 20 week ultrasound where they will do all of their measurements and make sure everything is developing normally, and tell you the gender if you would like to know. After the 20 week ultrasound, unless you are having complications, it is unlikely that you will get another ultrasound until towards the end if the pregnancy.

If you're still uncertain, I'd try taking a blood test; it is possible that if you are indeed pregnant, the pregnancy is too young to be shown in an ultrasound.

Now I have sore breasts, fatigue, food cravings, extra vaginal discharge, and major bloating but 3 negative urine tests.
