I find her to be late to the hospital and she is always in a hurry to leave. Due to this she gave a wrong scan report regarding baby size. My wife who is 34 weeks pregnant had undergone scanning by this radiologist. In fact she had given a scan report recently wherein she had mentioned baby's head size(HC) less than the head size of the baby mentioned in the scan report of previous month (less by 2 cm /20 mm). In fact the previous scan was also carried out by her. She did not even bother to think about the fact that head cannot shrink in size(if there is no growth of baby then it can remain same but cannot shrink). Because of this blunder my wife was admitted in the hospital for two days and she was readied twice for delivery thinking that baby is not growing for the past 3 weeks. Monitoring went on for two days and every parameter were normal. Then on the last day I raised my doubt to my wife's gynaecologist and insisted for an independent assessment by another radiologist. An independent radiologist carried out the scan. To our surprise the baby's growth is in line with timeline. To be specific head size is (HC)13 mm more than 3 weeks before. Luckily based on this new report my wife has been discharged from hospital without delivering the baby.
