    HI my name is Brittany. So this is very hard to discuss but I need to figure this out. In may I messed with this guy. The date was either may 16th or may 23. We didnt have sex but when he went he put his fingers inside me after. But then I had my period may 24th. That following week I got back with my ex who ive been with for 6 years. We basically did it every few days after my period. I was expecting my next period june 23 2012. but it didnt come I took a test and it was positive!!! We have been trying for 3 years now and now out of the blue it happened. So now Im completely freaked. Even though I didnt have sex with the other guy he still may of had sperm on his hand then in me. But then I had my period.....I am 16w 2d today. I am trying to figure out whos it is which is sad ive never been in a mess like this before. I really hope its my boyfriend of 6 yrs but I dont know 100% and its not fair to him. can someone please help me?????? Is it even possible to get pregnant without having sex. I did have a period that same month too. and does that math add up if im 16w 2d all the way back to may???? Please help

    Since you had your period after you "messed around" with the other guy, I'd say the baby is your BF's. Sperm die pretty quickly when exposed to air so unless he ejaculated on his hand and put his fingers inside you immediately after, pregnancy would be impossible.

    thanks!!!! I was thinking the same thing but i wasnt sure if i was trying to make myself believe it. When i thought about it if i would have gotten pregnant in may on either of those dates i would be between 18 and 17 weeks and by ultrasound i am 16w 2 d. so that kinda relieves me. i dont really even know if he actually even ejaculated before or after he did that but i wanted to be 100%. Its just odd that we have been together so long and never got pregnant and the 1 time out of 6yrs we split and i do something like that the following month i get pregnant......

    Couldnt the dr be off on the duedate though? Its possible she could of got pregnant the 16th or 23rd and they could be off on the due date. Its very unlikely for them to have intercourse and she gets pregnant, but it would scare me too if I never got pregnant by the other guy then after all that got pregnant?
