Concerned with paternity of my unborn child


Q: Hello, I'm really concerned about who could be the father of my child on Jan 10 2015 I had sex with my ex only one time he used the pull out method. The only reason I remember is because of a old text message from the night we had sex I had also had sex with my current boyfriend within the same month but can't remember the date for the life of me. My current boyfriend never pulls out during sex when I went to the doctor for my first ultrasound the doctor stated that I was right at 8weeks.They gave me a due date around oct 19 but on my proof of pregnancy paper it stated oct 13 I ended up switching doctors and had another ultrasound at 20 weeks 4days and she said she was going to move my due date to oct 16 I don't know which one would be more accurate but I wanted to know if it could be a strong possibility that it could be my ex child i'm just so terrified that it could be and I don't want to put my current boyfriend through this I will be devastated that it isn't but it's just something I have to deal with also I wanted to know if some doctors do prenatal paternity testing. I know there is a non invasive way that they can do but the other 2 ways I read up on is very risky and could cause miscarriage. I know that I can wait but i'm going to be stressed for the rest of my pregnancy because of this and if I have the opportunity to find out before I will so I can tell my current boyfriend before the baby is born so he can have the option to stay with me or not. I'm planning baby shower and I just can't put him through this not knowing for sure. I want and I believe it may be his but it's just that possibility and also I do have irregular cycles that last longer than the normal 28 days but no more than 40 days if this helps because another reason it's hard for me to pin point is I can't remember my last menstrual cycle
