We don't know if he is the father since we do not know your sexual history. A DNA test could always be performed at some point if you are unsure.

There are a couple of ways to determine how far along a woman is.

"Pregnancy can be dated from the first day of the last menstrual period or it can be dated from the day of ovulation.

In the United States, pregnancy is dated from the first day of the last menstrual period.....According to this system, conception doesn’t actually occur until 2 weeks of pregnancy....In many other places, the new knowledge has been incorporated into a dating system that starts with conception. In that system, pregnancy starts on the day of ovulation (usually the day of conception) and lasts for 266 days (38 weeks).

In both systems, the due date is exactly the same. It only makes a difference in calculating how far along you are during a pregnancy. For example, in the American system, the first trimester ends at approximately week 12, whereas in the other system, the first trimester ends at approximately week 10. The following table illustrates the differences:
Event American System Ovulation system
Conception Week 2 Week 0
Positive pregnancy test Week 4 Week 2
End 1st trimester Week 12-13 Weeks 10-11
End 2nd trimester Week 26 Week 24
Due date Week 40 Week 38

Similarly, if you are trying to calculate backward to figure out when you conceived, you need to know what system your doctor used when calculating your dates. In the American system, if you are 7 weeks pregnant, you conceived only 5 weeks ago."

Pregnancy Dating
Yes Ashley, the dating for pregnancy by most all doctors is the first day of your last menstrual period. You are actully NOT pregnant on the first day of your period, but conception occurs from 12-18 days approx after the first day of your last period, when you Ovulate. A DNA test, can be done when your baby is between 3-6 months old. You can also explain this situation to your health care provider. They can do an internal ultra sound, with a small wand type device that is inserted into the vagina; during early pregnancy. This will show the size in milimeters of the gestational sac & fetus. They can more accurately tell you when you conceived, approximately. Best bet is to have a DNA test later on. Good luck.

It is not really possible to tell with the info you are giving. Pregnancy calculators place your ovulation on Aug 6, but that does not mean sex on Aug 6 made you pregnant. Did you go without protection? With both men? When did you have sex with your husband? When was the due date determined and how?

On a different level, does it matter? You and your husband are raising her as your own. Telling him this will likely destroy both your lives as you know it today. If you really want to know, you can do a paternity test. It is possible to use his DNA for that without his knowledge. Contact one of the labs to find out how.

Lying is not really a good thing in a relationship, but you also have to consider the alternatives where you and your daughter can be left without means to support yourself. It is not good for her to grow up without a father figure in her life.

Best of luck!

Oh i havent told this to a single soul.Its been bothering me so much. I did use protection with the other person but my husband and me dont, her dute date was determined on 9 november 2009 ..doctor said she was 15 weeks and 4 days. I cannot muster the courage to tell him this. I asked the doctor if the other guy could possibly be the father ..he said it was like 1% since i did use protection.

Well there you go then. Saved by the condom. Why would you even think he could have gotten you pregnant? You are worried for nothing. If you used protection, it cannot be his baby, right?

At 15 weeks the estimation of conception dates are fairly inaccurate. So your dates does not really mean anything. There is however no reason to think that your ex could have gotten you pregnant.

So stop worrying about it.
