User :   as i was sayin, she
User :   she is in pakistan and 4 weeks into being married, i dnt no what their policies are but
Doctor :  
ok
User :   i dont think if they knew her to be more than 4 weeks pregnant, they would say, they most ]
User :   likely would cover up
User :   ???
User :   her hand is small but could a 4week old baby be even 2cm????
Doctor :  
you never know what has happened at that point of time
User :   wat do u mean
Doctor :  
a 4 week baby is about 1.5 cm
User :   i thopught u said 5mm
User :   ??
Doctor :  
i meant to say that she would have got married in circumsatnces after they found out she is pregnant
User :   i also read 5mm on another website
Doctor :  
i am sorry, it is 5 mm
Doctor :  
at 4 weeks
User :   i dont quite get u
User :   r u sure 5mm now???
Doctor :  
at 4 weeks weeks it is about 5 mm long
Doctor :   you can further visit this link

User :   that intrigues me
Doctor :  
which will show you the various sizes of the baby and uterus at each month
Doctor :  
WWW.WWWW.WW User :   i always use the pull out contraception method with her, which has been successful for 2.5yrs
User :   wats to say that the last time we had sex she got pregnant even though the same method of contraception was used
Doctor :  
even though you do not ejaculate into her, there are chances that she can be pregnant
Doctor :  
with this method
Doctor :  
as even precum contains the sperms
Doctor :  
and if u had unprotected intercourse during her fertile period
Doctor :  
there are chances that she could be pregnant
Doctor :  
have you followed what i have said?
User :   could u elaborate on "Doctor: i meant to say that she would have got married in circumsatnces after they found out she is pregnant"
User :   apart from the quote i just pasted
Doctor :   you told me earlier that she was married against her will
User :   yes
Doctor :  
so i was under impression that her pregnancy could have been found out in case she is more than a month pregnant
Doctor :  
and after finding that out
Doctor :  
they would have married her soon
User :   no it wasnt, she only found out herself this week
Doctor :  
ok
User :   they had no idea i am sure
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
now what she wants to do?
User :   she wants a divorce and for me to raise the child
Doctor :  
what does the scan report say? how many weeks pregnant she is now?
User :   she is becoming quite attatched and i couldnt make her have an abortion
Doctor :   ok
User :   she said the scan said 4 weeks
Doctor :  
i respect both your feelings
User :   thnk u
Doctor :  
when did she get married?
User :   on the 9th of october
Doctor :  
when dis she have her period before marriage?
Doctor :  
*did
User :   about 2 to 3 weeks before
Doctor :  
and when was the scan done?
User :   today, saturday. (it is sunday now but i havent slept
Doctor :  
did she have marital relation with her current husband?
User :   u mean sex???
User :   yes
User :   she had no choice
Doctor :  
yes, if you dont mind i need to ask this
Doctor :  
such that i can be able to tell you when she concieved
User :   ofcourse
User :   dont be shy
Doctor :  
ok
User :   i am strong
Doctor :  
then in that case if the report shows that the baby is 4 weeks there are chances
Doctor :  
that the baby was concieved after her marriage
User :   even though she told me that the baby was half of her palm
Doctor :  
if the scan report tells that baby is more than 4 weeks then there are chances that you are the father of the baby
Doctor :  
if the baby is half of her palm, then it is not of 4 weeks
Doctor :  
once shes comes back to you
Doctor :  
get a repeat scan done
Doctor :  
which will confirm the size of the baby
User :   i am considering the chance that the doctor said 4weeks knowing that they have only been married 4 weeks
User :   do u know what doctors r like in pakistan by any chance
Doctor :  
in case the baby is older than that, then it will suggest that she concieved before her marriage
User :   isnt the baby 5.5mm at 9 weeks
Doctor :  
I am sorry, i will not be able to comment on that, I am from Bangalore
User :   ok
User :   how big would the baby be if the last time we had sex unprotected was on the 27th of september
Doctor :   at 9 weeks
Doctor :  
the baby is about three quarter of an inch
User :   brb giv me 20 seconds i am getting a ruler
Doctor :  
when was her period in september or before that?does she have regular periods?
User :   yes she has regular periods
Doctor :   what is her usual length of cycles? i mean to ask in how many days once she bleeds? is it 28 days, 30 days? or more? and how long does her bleeding last?
Doctor :   when was her period in september or before that?
User :   as far as i knew she was having periods until a week or two after her marriage
Doctor :   ok
User :   every 32 days approximately
Doctor :  
ok
User :   and lasts for about 5 days
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
when was her period in september or before that?
User :   every month she has one so the last one i was there for was in september
User :   she left on the 28th of Sep
Doctor :   when in september?
Doctor :  
you told me last time you met was 27th september. so when before that she had her period?
User :   maybe around the 20th
User :   about a week before
Doctor :  
and before that? when she had her periods in August?
User :   yes
Doctor :  
in august around what dates she had her periods?
User :   around the 18th probably she is regular but not exactly every 30 days
User :   y??
Doctor :  
in case she had her periods on 20th September and got preganant at that month, then the baby would be appoximately 10 weeks old now
User :   as in before the 20th???
User :   ok
Doctor :   and in case she got prteganant before september period, then baby would be approximately 15 weeks
User :   u mean just after the 20th
User :   ok
User :   could u tell me the sizes for each case
Doctor :  
in these cases she will have a baby whose size will be appoximately half of her hand in case she has small hands
Doctor :  
at 10 weeks, baby is a inch long and probably weighs around five grams.
User :   she is 5"4 so maybe u can imagine, she has a small frame
Doctor :   and at 15 weeks, baby is about 4 to 4.5 inch long
Doctor :   so still we cannot say what is happening
User :   that is a massive growth isnt it
Doctor :  
until you get a repeat scan done for her
User :   damn
User :   is there any signs which i could ask her about to narrw it down
User :   *narrow
Doctor :  
i wil give you another link to see changes to be expected in the mother and baby at different weeks of pregnancy
Doctor :  
WWW.WWWW.WW Doctor :   you could ask her other signs of pregnancy and when she started feeling them
Doctor :  
which will help you a bit to narrow down, but it is not definite
Doctor :  
as in some women
Doctor :  
the signs appear even a day after conception
User :   she stopped having her period around the 23rd Nov
Doctor :  
and in some women the signs may take upto 3 months to appear
User :   how often do women carry on having periods after conception
Doctor :   in few women, the periods are known to last for about 3 months after pregnancy
Doctor :  
the frequency varies
Doctor :  
and each person is different
User :   how few???
Doctor :  
you could say almost 10% in entire world
User :   i told u when she had her last period
Doctor :  
which will be approximately 1 in 0000 women
User :   wowwww
User :   so its not very likey that she had up to 2 periods after conception
Doctor :  
yes u told me, but we still do not know when she concieved
Doctor :  
and i do not have the scan images with me that i can tel you definetely the size of baby and duration of pregnancy
Doctor :  
it is likely that she could have had two or may be three periods after she got concieved
User :   but she said it is the size of half of her hand, given her height can u aproximately guess the size of her hand, and whether a baby would be that size after 4 weeks
User :   how likely
User :   im sorry im just panicky, forgive me for so many questions
Doctor :  
it is ok. do not worru
Doctor :  
i understand your situation
Doctor :   *worry
User :   thank u
Doctor :  
if the baby is more than 10 weeks old then we can believe her description of the size she is teelin of the baby
User :   v
Doctor :  
but we cannot say concretely that the baby is more than 4 weeks old unless we do a repeat scan
Doctor :  
so wait till she can meet you again
Doctor :  
and take a repeat scan for her
User :   she is bak on the 21st, i would like it to be mine
Doctor :  
which will show correctly what is the real picture
Doctor :  
based on the scan report at that time
User :   where is bangalore???
Doctor :  
if it says she is more than 4 weeks, to be precise upto 6 weeks or more, then you can claim to be the biological father of the baby and accept her and the baby
Doctor :  
Bangalore is in Karnataka, India.
User :   yes i just wikipedia'd it
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
is there anything else i can help you with?
User :   so you myt have an idea of pakistan, would they be delicate on marriage and pregnancy
Doctor :  
as far as i know, muslim people are very delicate on these matters
Doctor :  
you might have a hard time facing this
User :   yes
Doctor :  
where are you located now?
User :   london
Doctor :  
ok
User :   hard toime, what do u mean
User :   *time
Doctor :  
you can approach the london court with the reports and try for a divorce for her telling she was married forcefully and that she is carying your baby, you want to marry her and take responsibity of the baby
Doctor :  
in pakistan i do not know how the reaction would be
User :   could you tell me a bit more about this
Doctor :  
just find out from your lwyer how you can go about this once you take the repeat scan for the baby
User :   they would take it badly but we r deeply in love
Doctor :  
*lawyer
User :   ok
Doctor :  
your lwayer will be the best person to help you out in this matter
User :   she still talks to me every day
Doctor :  
*lawyer
Doctor :  
tell to keep everything a secret and come back to london if she can
User :   her family already no
Doctor :  
which will ease out the situation a bit to be handled
Doctor :  
i meant for the baby
User :   she told her "husbands" parents to hurt him
User :   who told her parents
Doctor :  
what did she tell her husband's parents?
User :   that she was pregnant
Doctor :  
so what is their reaction now?
Doctor :  
are they willing for a divorce?
User :   they believe it to be his
Doctor :  
if they are, then speak to your lawyer
Doctor :  
ok
User :   but she could do what she wanted when bak in london
User :   they wouldnt be happy though
Doctor :  
if they find out that she was pregnant before marriage and the child is not his, then will they agree for divorce?
Doctor :  
the only way to prove or disprove the conception time is by taking a repeat scan
User :   i highly doubt they will agree
User :   but she has her heart set on me
Doctor :  
and then as per the report go about the next steps after discussion with your lawyer
Doctor :  
i suggest you wait till she can come back to london
Doctor :  
take a repeat scan and get back to me
Doctor :  
and also inform your lawyer about this situation.
User :   how do i get to talk to u, what if the site directs me to someone else

Doctor :

Doctor :

Doctor :

Doctor :

User :   didnt u say 4 to 6 weeks, then it could be mine???
User :   more than 4 to 6 weeks??
User :   *
Doctor :   yes, i said that too, but as per the size she is mentioning to you, the baby needs to be 10 weeks or more old
Doctor :  
otherwise if the baby as per repeat scan is 6 weeks, it could be yours
