"Sonographer a joke"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

Had my second measurement scan at Ultrasound department yesterday afternoon. The sonographer was utter rude. Firstly stated that I was too fat to get measurements, then stated that my baby is too difficult and awkward. Everything they needed to measure was clearly displayed on the screen even their colleague said so. This sonographer just couldnt be bothered to do their job probably!
