You would definitely need a DNA test. Conception dates and dating scans can be off by a few days, so there's really no way to know for sure.

If it was a normal period, probably what they said is that your gestation date is 30 December, meaning that your conception date was around the second week of January.  The chance of it being the first guy's baby sounds pretty slim even if they did say December 30 was your conception date, sperm doesn't last two weeks in your system.

What's your due date?

It's rare, but it IS possible to get pregnant while on your period.

All medical counting of pregnancy is done from the first day of the last period, because that is usually a known date with a visible signal (the starting of bleeding).  This is true even though of course every doctor would tell you that on the first day of your last period, you were having a period, you weren't pregnant yet.  They count from that point (day 1 of bleeding is the first day of the count) and assume you conceive at about day 14, 15 or 16, by that count.  Even ultrasounds use this kind of count.  An ultrasonographer who says "You look to be 10 weeks 3 days pregnant" is saying you're about 8 weeks 3 days since conception.

Are you sure you didn't have sex after your period. A first trimester ultrasound can be off, but it wouldn't be off by two weeks.

I got pregnant while on my period. so its possible. I think it was meant for me to have a baby tho, I was on my period, birth control and used a condom and im 27weeks now lol.

All we can do is guess who the dad is, only a DNA test will tell you for sure, if I had to guess id say the second guy.

You got pregnant in January. These are your dates according to the due date they gave you.

First Day of Last Menstrual Period:  *December 30, 2011*
Probable Date of Ovulation: * January 13, 2012*
Possible Dates of Conception: * January 9 to January 17, 2012*
Due Date: * October 5, 2012* (40 weeks)

So whoever you had sex with in January is the father of the baby.

They're saying you would have been 8 weeks 3 days at conception because doctors go by your last period and not conception. So 2 of those 10 weeks you weren't actually pregnant, but since they cannot definitely tell you a conception day they use your last period.

It's definitely whoever you had sex with in January. There's no way the ultrasound would be off by that much.

December 30 was your first day of your lmp, you didn't ovulate until January.

Gestationally we are only in our 14-15th week. You conceived in January so whoever you had sex with in January would be the baby's father :)

Congrats!!

I'm due Oct 9th and had my period jan 2-7. They said I conceived jan 17th, but I haven't had sex months before or since the 16th(late at night) so one day isn't very far off. You are only due a few days before me so I'm gna say the pregnancy came from January's fun.

My last period was around the 22nd 24th of March 2012. Meaning my due date is  December 27 or 30. Now I go to the doctor at 7 weeks they tell me my due date is January 11th.???? but if that is so I would of had to have my last period the beginning of April, which I didn't. I had no period at the end of the month which is when I always came on. around my 20 week ultrasound they say my baby measures a little small. So if my baby measures small it will make it as though my due date would be Jan right??? So I'm going to go off my last period and keep my due date at the end of December right??

Well maybe ..I mean ..I know this is a bit crazy..but just maybe you should use protection if your going to sleep around..I mean really letting men ejaculate in you that you have no intention on being with long term is pretty shameful..it's your mess figure it out! Next time keep your legs closed or put that rubber thing on called a condom
