You can test by amniocentesis during the second trimester,

anywhere from the 14th-20th weeks of pregnancy. Risks include a

small chance of harming the baby and miscarriage. Other side

effects may include cramping, leaking amniotic fluid, and vaginal

bleeding. You can also test by chorionic villus sampling (CVS) from

the 10th-13th weeks. A doctor's consent is needed to do either

procedure for paternity testing.
