Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have had EWCM, it would indicate ovulation. It is difficult to say who would have fathered the baby if there was no period in between your different sexual encounters, but if there was a period between your two different sexual contacts, the one after periods would have resulted in pregnancy. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. The intercourse during your peak fertile days or closer to your ovulation day is likely to result in pregnancy. If your last periods were normal and if your LMP date (last menstrual period date) is Sept 16th, 2014, then your probable ovulation day would be around Sept 30th, 2013, and probable conception date would lie between Sept 26th - Oct 4th, 2013 (calculation based on regular menstrual cycles of 28-30 days). If your due date (completion of 40 weeks of gestation) is known, then you can count back to know your probable conception date and current gestational age. If your periods are regular, you can also calculate your ovulation date and current gestational age based on the menstrual cycle length and last period date. Ultrasound scan done for dating can also help with knowing your probable conception date. The exact results can only be made out after a Paternity test. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further assistance and clarification.
Take care.
