It was that OTHER activity that men sometime engage in with attractive women that causes them to start sweating profusely and to begin grunting in a rhythmic and spasmodic way and to get increasingly excited. For instance, it seems like we're supposed to assume that Forrest got Jenny pregnant when she visited on July 4, 1976. So the viewer is left to conclude that he either died or deserted his family. She knew that if she was pregnant, her child would need a father.
Mrs. Gump knows that Forrest doesn't need long explanations about the vicissitudes of life; he needs a simple, easy-to-understand analogy that turns the abstract nature of fate into something concrete, tangible, and, above all, delicious.

Slow-witted Forrest Gump has never thought of himself as disadvantaged, and thanks to his supportive mother, he leads anything but a restricted life. But one person Forrest cares about most may be the most difficult to save -- his childhood love, the …
Mrs. Gump just said he was 'on a vacation'. It is based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom and stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson and Sally Field. Whether dominating on the gridiron as a college football star, fighting in Vietnam or captaining a shrimp boat, Forrest inspires people with his childlike optimism.
There was never an explaination about where or who Gump's father was. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if Forrest really was the father because Forrest loved Jenny and if Jenny needed him to take care her child he would. But he later visits her on March 30, 1981 (Reagan's assassination attempt is shown on tv as breaking news). No it wasn’t sex. Subtract 9 months for the length of Jenny's pregnancy and Forrest, Jr. is barely four years old. So, she slept with Forrest to create the possibility that Forrest could be a father.
The amount of time between these two dates is about 4 years, 9 months.
