My fiancé and I were having problems in June so we decided to take a break, in between that break I began talking to an ex, we had sex sometime in July. August 9th I went to the E.R. and from there found out I was 7 weeks; 4 days pregnant. My fiancé and I are back together and I'm confused on who the dad is?.. What do I do? When was the baby actually conceived? Would the baby be my fiancé or the ex?

When was your last ovulation? If you don't know there are some great sites that can tell you based on how long your cycles typically are and how often you have them. If you are indeed 7 weeks 4 days as of 8-9-12 and they are going by your LMP, then you probably conceived around 6-3-12. Typically you would ovulate around 2 weeks prior to your LMP, so the sex that resulted in this baby most likely occured in May. Now, these are only guesses based on very limited information. Also, typically only an ultrasound can give you a close approximation on how far along you are... If they are only basing how far along you are by the last period you had, they may be off, but if they are basing on an ultrasound it is usually pretty close... If you truly are that far along and only had sex with the ex in July, then it is most likely your fiances... If you are really unsure, then a paternity test is going to be your best bet in the long run. If it turns out you aren't as far along as they believe you are, then you may have some concerns...



Since finding out you were pregnant in August, have you had any additional appointments or ultrasounds? That should give you a more definite idea of the time of conception... If that original estimate was right, you should be at 18 weeks now... They usually do an ultrasound around 20 weeks...

I can't even remember my ovulation date. but Yes they told me how far along I was based off the ultrasound. I had sex with my ex the beginning on July. My last cycle was June 24th. I had an appointment last week but they called to cancel, then I had another one today but they cancelled again. So I can't see an obgyn until November 23rd. ): this is so stressful
