The pregnancy test is best to confirm pregnancy. In early pregnancy, ultrasound may not show it.

if we had a miscarriage last month and this time she has different symptoms like, more pain and bloating (bigger belly) when period is stil 9-10 days away
can we not have a blood test or ultrasound to find out if the pregnancy is normal
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 16 days ago.

You may do a blood or urine test for pregnancy.

The present symptoms may not be due to pregnancy, though.

An ultrasound for assessing the cause of these symptoms would be good.
