Finding out the race of your baby

PLEASE HELP ME!! I messed up by cheating on my blond hair, blue eyed boyfriend with a black man!! Does anyone know if there is some kind of a test to find out the race of your baby before it's born?? If so, how soon can I get it done?? I know I should just come clean with my boyfriend, but I don't want to add the extra stress of not knowing who's it is for 7 more months.

Re: Finding out the race of your baby

honey, you will have to come clean cause... the only way anything will be for sure is when the baby gets here and / you do a blood test.. but i have never heard of a blood test before the baby is born....

Re: Finding out the race of your baby

There isnt a test to determine race of a baby. There are DNA tests that show who the father is. Now there are two ways to go about that. One is Amnio but those can be risky since it does carry a risk of miscarriage. The second is a DNA test after the baby is born and it is a blood test most the time. It is normally done as a swab test.
You are going to have to come clean to your bf because he deserves to know now that the baby may not be his. He deserves to know tha tyou cheated on him and that you put him at risk for stds as well. Think of it this way wouldnt you feel you deserve to know if your bf cheated on you? Now say he got a girl pregnant which means he didnt use protection and now you have been exposed to stds because of his would want to know that now wouldnt you. The sooner the better I would assume.
