If you wish to confirm the pregnancy and see that it is in the right place, around 8 weeks is a good time.
The symptoms of ectopic pregnancy are abdominal pain, bleeding, faintness or pain in the shoulder.

Best wishes

Most doctors would refer you to have an ultrasound done between 8 and 12 weeks. The main symptom of an ectopic pregnancy would be severe abdominal pain and possible bleeding.
