Quote cardgirl: It was really bothering me that this new doctor did not notice that in Maxie's medical records it showed she had a miscarriage in January. We know this because Ellie hacked into Maxie's records and saw it, and assumed Britt used one of the TWO remaining embryo's to impregnate Maxie again. But Maxie confessed to Ellie that the baby was Spinelli's, so Ellie would not go to the hospital to see if there was only one embryo left. Knowing she would find two.
We know Britt knew this all along about Maxie carrying her own baby but she had to take a leave and the new doctor took over. How did she NOT notice something was amiss? Poor training perhaps? Annnywaaay...here is my twist.
Some of us think Britt stole one of the remaining embryo's to make herself pregnant. But what if she didn't and the baby she is carrying is some freak child Mommy Dearest concocted? This would still leave two of Lante's embryo's left.
Sooo what if out of her fierce guilt at knowing Maxie's was not carrying Lante's child, Ellie offers to become a new surrogate for Lante. Would Lante allow her to do this? Would they trust her? I think this would solve a lot of problems for everyone especially if Britt is NOT carrying Lante's baby. I even went back to the daily updates in May where Maxie and Ellie talk about the baby being hers and Ellie clearly says there were two other embryo's which could still be there. I just think this could make for good story. Maybe.
I know from personal experience that doctors only scan your chart if that. My son was in the hospital 4 times this past year and every time they brought in a new doctor we would have to tell them the story from the beginning, while they held the chart in their hand. I even made comment several times that all his info was in the chart and basically they ignored my comment and asked me about his condition. So basically the actors are just acting true to form as doctors. I know the nurses update patient's charts on the computer but the doctors don't seem to check that info either. So any recent info on the show would be the only thing the doctor would notice, not what happened months prior.
