It is possible to do an amniocentesis, but this has a 1% miscarriage risk.

Best wishes

It is possible yes, but also dangerous. I would not take the risk of losing the baby just to establish fatherhood. Wait till baby is born to do bloods. You may as well request this from the doctor before birth, and doctor can take the sample from the umbilical cord straight after birth.
