Advice needed

Im one month pregnant, the baby's dad died a few days ago. I am so scared to go through this pregnancy b/c im scared i will lose the baby due to stress, and now people are telling his family that he's not the dad but i am positive that he is. Even tho his fam believes he is the dad, Is there any way i could get a paternity test done to prove he is?

  • you wil have to wait till the baby is born sorry. they could do a amnio at like 15weeks but they usually wont do those on a healthy pregnancy to much of a danger. Just hang in there for the sake of baby i know its stressfull but you'll be truly blessed when you hold that little baby in your arms. My grandfather passed away when i was just 6wks along im now 21wks so just hang in there. sorry to hear about your loss.

  • if the family believes you then don't worry about it. It's just added stress to what you already have going on.
