There is no way of knowing the exact day you conceived. Even if you know your last period it can give you an idea, but if you ovulate differently then what the computer models calculate then you will be off. Everyone ovulates differently and sometimes you can ovulate differently from month to month. Since you can only become pregnant when you ovulate you have to know when you ovulate to know when about you conceived. If you know when you ovulated then you can know about when, but like another poster said sperm can live up to 72 hours, so if you have sex with multiple guys around the time you ovulate then anyone of them could be the possible father. The ultrasound is also just a guesser. There is a margin of error as to when your due date is when calculated by ultrasound......so it can give you an idea, but it can't tell you who the father is. If you want to know who the father is the only way you are going to be able to know for sure is by doing a DNA test. This can only be done once baby is born. As another poster said....suggestion would be to only have sex with one guy.....or not have sex at all if not wanting to become pregnant.

I was wondering the same thing as well! It's really important to me that I know when my baby was conceived. I went to my ultra sound and they said my baby was 16 weeks, but doesn't it take a week for the baby to travel to your uterus once conceived? If so then would I technically be 17 weeks? I really wanna know an exact date of when she was conceived but no one can really help me find out :/

only if she was writing everything down (when her last period ended, when every sexual intercourse was, etc) would you be able to pin point the date. um, I'd recommend to her to stick with one guy at a time for now on although she's already in a pickle

There are websites where you can put in information on your due date/last menstrual period and they can give you an estimate. I kind of just know because in the couple days it told me I knew that one of those days we had unprotected sex and we were usually very very careful otherwise.
Here is the website that I find helpful:
They have a few calculators to tell you all kinds of dates and milestones throughout your pregnancy :-)

You could give yourself the around about date if you kept track of what day you started your period and what day it ended. For me I knew when I started my last period, when it stopped. Left town the next week (having no sex). The night I got back into town, my husband and I had sex and I just have the gut feeling that is the day we got pregnant. Had sex again a week later but don't think that was the date, cause a few days after the one sex I started to get really bad cramps like I was going to start my period and I knew I wasn't cause I just got off from having one.
