She got the same results. Abigail then confided to Kayla that she didn't know who the father was. Kayla told her that she needed to wait a few more weeks before she was far enough along to run a paternity test against Chad's medical records, which the hospital had on file.
Abigail settled in to wait. At the same time, Ben's father Clyde was busy trying to steal some of Stefano's territory. So, he had planted a bug in the DiMera living room.

What she was really doing was waiting for the results of the paternity test. But Clyde came across a prescription at their apartment for prenatal vitamins.

So, he threatened the lab tech's family so that the lab would return the results that Chad was not the father of Abigail's baby. However on the day of the test, the lab tech got called out of the lab. His assistant finished the test and delivered the results to Kayla.

Chad was heartbroken to learn of the engagement. He asked Will to set up a meeting between him and Abigail so he could explain that he still loved her. But, Abigail was not moved by his speech.
She was still determined to marry Ben. She told Ben about the baby and the two of them started planning their wedding and their life together. Chad reluctantly agreed to back off. But, he wanted Abigail to be free from Stefano's grasp. So, he called her over and told her in front of Stefano about the land in Ireland. Abigail was moved by his gesture and started to believe that he really did love her.
Still, she remained committed to Ben. But her committment was only in words. Abigail made excuses to see Chad or talk to Chad all the time. Ben's jealousy over their relationship grew to the point where Ben snapped. He decided he had to get Chad away from Abigail permaenetly. The murders of Paige and Will soon followed. But, Abigail believed in Chad, which made Ben even more mad. So, he ordered Abigail to leave town with him.
She realized that he'd been behind the killings.
