Brief Answer: current partner Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for information. You are unlikely to conceive when you are bleeding in menses. Hence possibility of pregnancy ftom sex in 28 September is almost nil. Hence your current partner is father of child. Ultrasound shows one week difference. So its acceptable. Let me know if anymore doubts exist. Regards

Brief Answer: yes Detailed Answer: Hi First trimester ultrasound has error margin of one week means one week ahead or back. Hence you got 4 days difference on ultrasound. By all means your new partner is father of baby.
