Has anyone ever had a goat ultrasounded? How accurate is it? And what is the time frame it would need to be done to be accurate?

Ok, here's the deal, I have a doe that I put with the buck for a month which would have put her due in Oct., but from the looks of her I'd say she didn't take. She was in with the buck again in August (not to be bred, I just had no choice), and since then she has been in with the buck several times because she keeps escaping into his pen (not sure yet how she's doing it). Anyway, with as much expossure as she's had I would think she's surely bred, but so far I'm just not seeing it. Until now I've only had one doe I just wasn't sure about until a month before she kidded, I can usually tell after two months and definately after 3. Over the last few weeks I've been seeing some white discharge, I figured it either means she's bred or in heat, so I put her with the buck and he didn't show any interest. She has enough of a gut that it's possible, but other then that and the discharge no other signs that she may be bred.

So I have been thinking about getting her Ultrasounded, so I'll finally know and be able to stop obsessing. So what do you all think?

Thanks everyone for the help! I guess I will ask my vet about it and see how accurate he has been, I know he does it because I asked about it once before, and if I remember right he said it'd be around $40, but there were a few questions I asked and he didn't really give me a straight answer (such as best time to have it done). I'll also ask him about the blood test, if it's cheaper it sounds better anyway!
