To find out the father you will need to do a DNA test once baby is born. There is no way of knowing which one is the father without that test. Sperm can live up to 72 hours after sex and pull out means nothing as a guy can have pre ejaculated before pulling out at any time and the result is the same. There is no way to know by size, due date, or even how baby looks which guy is the father. There are people that swear their child looks just like so and so and it ends up being the other guy. Do the dna test after birth.

Sarah is right about the ultrasound. I just need to say that unprotected sex is not safe and very irresponsible and the "pull out" method is not birth control. Not to mention having multiple partners is also dangerous. Now you are pregnant and don't know who is the father of your baby. I do hope you are making plans to take care of this baby because they are demanding and very expensive. Best of luck to you and your baby.

Alexis, no need to apologize. If you do want to start your own thread, go to your profile page and there is a bar for you to type the title of your post; then you can go on to give the details. I will caution you though, that the responses you will get may be quite direct. No one is intentionally unkind but there are many "who's the daddy?" sort of posts. No one can tell you for sure; you know that. What are you most worried about? Also, brace yourself for a blast of comments about having unprotected sex with multiple partners. It may seem harsh but it comes from a place of wanting you to be safe, take care of your body and have good self-esteem. Good Luck.

Alexis, this is an older post so you might want to start your own thread but i can tell you what you are going to hear. No one can say for sure who the father is, if you had a normal period in February and then had sex ONLY with guy B, then he is probably the father. Ultimately you will have to have a DNA test done if there is any uncertainty of the identity of the father.

A DNA test is the only way to know for sure. And also not having unprotected sex with multiple men. That works too.

Good grief. Here's the deal. NOTHING IS EXACT when it comes to ultrasounds, gender identification, etc.

To find out who the father of your child is, you'll need a DNA test done. good luck with that.

A pregnancy is counted 40 weeks from the start of your last period. That's why you were told you were 8 weeks along.
Like the others have said, the only way to know who the Father is is to do a DNA test after the child is born.

I would say it is probably the first guy's. If you had sex on the 15th, and the ultrasound estimated conception on the 17th, then that would be the first guy. Sperm can live for 2-3 days before fertilizing the egg. But there really is no way to be sure unless you do a DNA test after the baby is born. It's cheaper if you can get samples from both men and have only one test done, but if you think it's one guy and don't want to get the other involved unless it's necessary, then just do one at a time. If you are unmarried and need to have child support set up, then the court will need a DNA test to prove paternity and make sure the money comes from the right guy.

yes I agree and it was very stupid of me..i will def. be taking care of my son just wanted to know if it was possible for it to be off a week. bc the ultrasound woman told me it might be off a couple of days but not a week. and now I am 29 weeks today and he is big for 29 weeks..he weighs 3.2lbs so now im thinking he could be the first guys but all babys come in different sizes

ok..heres the problem..the last day of my period was September 15th and it usually is 2 or 3 days so guessing started on September 12th or 13th. I had sex with one guy on the 15th and he didn't pull out..but then on the 24th I had sex with a different guy but we didn't use a condom and he did pull out!! I went to the dr and the ultrasound woman said I was measuring 8 weeks..i counted back 8 weeks from that day and it said it was on the 17th..could this be wrong? im stuck and not sure who the father is?? help??

Ultrasounds are just like everything else.......it is an estimated guess. So yes it could be off a week or it could not be. The earlier the ultrasound the more accurate it is.
