  • I just went through something similar. There is a test that you can get after 15 wks of pregnancy where they take your blood, swab the alleged father and do it that way. It is expensive, (around $1200) but it is accurate. just google paternity tests, and the links should pop up. I'll try to locate the phone # I used. GOOD LUCK!!

  • You can't unless you have an amnio and they don't just do those without good reason,i.e. over 30-35, past health issues, numerous miscarriages and more reasons. You will have to wait until the baby is born and have it done then.

  • i agree, wait until the baby is born. then it is simply a cheek swab

  • I understand that you want to give him an answer now, and that he might not support you until you can prove paternity. but it's not worth risking the baby's health right now. Wait until delivery.

  • i have to wait til my daughter's born.. but he can wait..if he cant wait, tell him you're gonna go to the file for custody and they'll do a paternity test then, but it will take 6 weeks
