Who is the father?

My EDD throughout my whole pregnancy has been August 7th , 2020. I had sex with Guy #1 on October 23rd, 2019. I believe i had a period on November 1st , 2019 but I’m not completely sure . I had sex with Guy #2 November 12,13,15, and 19. Based on all conception calculators , Guy # 2 is the father but i can’t help to wonder If it can possibly be guy #1 baby. I wonder this because my baby does not look nothing like guy #2 and nowhere near the same skin color.

The ovulation that goes with EDD Aug 7th occurred on Nov 14th. A period Nov 1st fits that time line.  Where mixed race parenting is involved, I don’t think skin color can be used to make a judgement. Congratulations on your lovely child.

That’s the thing we are not mixed race, both of us are dark skinned African Americans, and my little one came out pale as ever
Are you saying that you think the baby looks like the other guy, or just that you don't know what to make of the surprising appearance of skin that's paler than you expected?

I've heard that African American babies can take six to 12 months for their full skin color to develop. Have you asked your mom or grandma what your own skin color was like when you were born, and your siblings' skin color? And do you know if there is any paler skin up either of your family trees?

Regarding the resemblance to the baby's dad, do you have any photos of your boyfriend when he was a baby that you can look at, and compare to photos of your baby? (Do this photo to photo, don't try to hold a photo up to a living, wiggling baby, or you won't be able to assess.) My son was born with not much baby fat, stork bites, reddish-brown hair, etc. and you wouldn't have thought he looked much like my husband at all, or even my husband's family except a little like one aunt. But we got out an old black-and-white photo of my husband as a baby, and printed out a new photo of our son using a black-and-white format, wow, you seriously could not tell which baby was which.

I'm not saying it sounds like there's any doubt by your dates who the daddy is, but that if you get information about your and your boyfriend's family heritage, and info about babies' skin color at birth in the family, and look at the historic photo compared to the recent photo, you might be able to see that there is a resemblance after all, and will be able to calm down.

My boyfriend came out so dark his dad accused his mom of cheating he thought he was black but they aren’t at all, he just ended up being a tan kid and def looks like his fathers side now and is definitely not black so I think babies change a lot
