It's good that you got an early ultrasound-based date, because those done in the 7th or 8th week are the most accurate at measuring pregnancy for purposes of timing conception.  Using the first due date, the conception calculator says:

Possible Dates of Conception:  June 15 to June 23, 2012
Due Date:  March 12, 2013 (40 weeks)

If the guy you are worried about was the one on June 12, the numbers make him less likely but not entirely in the clear.  Sperm can live in your system for several days.  Since you used a condom, though, the June 12 guy is less likely than the numbers make him, compared to the guy who finished inside and had more opportunities.  The June 12 guy would have had to have sperm in his pre-ejaculate, and in some way it would have had to gotten outside the condom.  Then it would have had to live a few days.

However, because it is so important to know, to be fair to the potential daddies and to the child, you need to do a DNA test once the baby is born.

In the meantime, since you did have that early ultrasound that gave you the March 12th due date, you could count backwards on a calendar from  it.  This isn't accurate if you got your due date some other way, but an ultrasound is based on an actual measurement of the embryo, and that early it is likely to be accurate give or take one or two days.  Count back 266 days from March 12, to get an idea of the likely conception date.

You know, I've never heard the cost.  For a while there were kits sold at places like Walgreen's, but if it was my child's future, I'd get one done more officially even if it was a little more costly.  Your doctor should know the labs that do this kind of work, and certainly local family-law attorneys or legal clinics should know also.

Yeah dna tests at walgreens are almost 200 bucks. It's like 20 for the lit then around 100/120 for them to do the actual test.
