  • Hello, and welcome to Baby Corner!

    I'm sorry you are frustrated. It's very hard to tell exactly when someone conceived, but with some calculations you can get a ball bark day or week. Conception will occur around ovulation date.

    I put your numbers into the implantation calculator and assuming her cycle is 28 days (if her cycle is not 28 days, let me know because that will change things):

    Estimated Ovulation/Conception: February 13, 2012
    Estimated Implantation Dates: Between February 19, 2012 and February 23, 2012

    Do you know when her due date is? We can pinpoint a little better with these above numbers combined with the due date.

    But again, it's very hard to find the exact day of conception.

  • I believe her due date is 11/6/12. She has pcos so I think her cycle isn't going off a normal "schedule".between the dates of 2/12 and 2/21 she was with both of us at different times so I'm telling her that until the baby arrives and a paternity test is done,there's really no way to know for sure who the father is. I do want it known that I am hoping to be the father : )

  • A very difficult situation for all involved. Yes, I would recommend the paternity test regardless. Nothing is 100%.

    I hope everything works out for you.

  • Let me refer you to my friend.......Maury Povich!

    Just kidding, I'm the only other dad on here so good luck if you are the dad. Either way I hope everything is resolved as to what's best for the child. Dad doesn't have to be DNA related in my opinion, it is who assumes and accepts that important role.
