The earlier the scan the better it is for guessing the conception date.  But there's no way to def know unless u go get a dna test...

Please remember that your earlier scan is the more likely to be reliable.  

Medical way of computing gestational age will always take you back to the first day of your last period, not to the day you conceived.  The following will give you estimated conception date, and it looks like all choices point to your boyfriend.

For a due date of July 15, 2013:
(Assumed) first day of last menstrual period:  October 8, 2012
Probable date of ovulation:  October 22, 2012
Possible dates of conception:  October 18 to October 26, 2012

For a due date of July 25, 2013:
(Assumed) first day of last menstrual period:  October 18, 2012
Probable date of ovulation:  November 1, 2012
Possible dates of conception:  October 28 to November 5, 2012

Sweetheart, given that you had a period on the 21st of October and given that the calculators all point to late October, you have nothing to worry about.  Congrats to you and your boyfriend.

Hi, how did you get your due date?  If it was by an ultrasound, when was the ultrasound in the pregnancy (i.e., sixth week, seventh week etc.)

If you got your due date by a reliable method like an early ultrasound, you can trust the calculator, but if you simply got it by noting the first day of your last period, it can be off because some women have irregular cycles.

For a due date of March 1, the calculator gives the following:

Assumed first day of last menstrual period:  May 25, 2012
Probable date of ovulation:  June 8, 2012
Possible dates of conception:  June 4 to June 12, 2012

Did you have sex with someone else right before your boyfriend?

Take care, Kiwi.  I wish all the women who write on this forum could be so lucky as to have such an easy question with a happy answer.

The date is in your conception week, but unfortunately so is the date with the other guy.  I'm glad you told your boyfriend, and of course a DNA test is the thing to do.  Good job, you made a difficult situation better by being honest with him.  Good luck with the DNA test.  Go to a lab certified by the courts, no Internet tests.
