So really it can't have been but 9 months or so. Plus it's been made pretty clear that this was their first winter. They even talked about it at the farm, hoping the first winter would kill off some zombies.
I think they make it clear that Shane WANTS it to be his I know for it to be his the time doesn't add up for it to be his but I think they were emphasizing that Shane himself believed that the baby was his, not so much that it really was & Lori never actually comes out & says that it's his, that I know, but she does entertain the thought, all I remember her saying is that she says there is a chance the baby might be his.
I know a thing of two about big thumbs/small screen lol.
