So I have a very serious question,
My ex-boyfriend, the man I had believed to be my daughter's father did an at home DNA test and sent the results in and it came back as him having a 0% chance of being the father. Now, when I found out I was pregnant we had been broken up for about a month and a half. I had slept with another man 3-4 weeks after the last time my ex and I had slept together so I know there is a chance. However, my daughter looks just like my ex to me. I have brown eyes, the other man had brown eyes and my ex has bright blue eyes, just like my daughter's. There are many similarities between my ex and my daughter. I am going to retest in an office setting once I get enough money but my question is have any of you done DNA tests, specifically at home ones, and the results end up being wrong?
Thank you so much!

Just because you and the guy you slept with have brown eyes doesn't mean you will have a brown eyed baby. You could both carry the blue eyed gene many generations back and it's a 1 in 4 chance of having a blue eyed baby.
Maybe study a bit of genetics before going and spending a lot of money on a test that will probably have the same results.
Genetics is a very complex thing and isn't just what the parents look like, it's the genes that have been carried through generations!!!
