Doctors are scientists, not psychics. Your doctor was making his best guess with what information he had. Chances are the scan provided more detailed information and is more correct. The exact date of conception is nearly impossible to figure out unless the woman can say with certainty.

I am 10 weeks pregnant and had a X-ray done when i was about 4 weeks pregnant do you think it could have hurt my baby?

X-rays are just about never "healthy", but if your physician knew that you were pregnant then he'd have made the decision whether the advantage to you would have been worth the risk for the baby.

If a scan showed you were 28 weeks pregnant but when you went to the hospital they said you felt 30-32 weeks pregnant could the scan prediction be wrong?

Ultrasound predictions of how far along someone is get worse and worse the longer the person is pregnant. An ultrasound predicting 28 weeks pregnant could be 2 weeks off (either more or less); by the end of pregnancy, they can be as many as three weeks off. The best ultrasounds to get to predict due dates are those done in the first trimester (first three months). In this case, having an ultrasound predicting 28 weeks pregnant and a physician predicting 30 could be about the same thing. "Feeling" 30-32 weeks pregnant also isn't the best predictor either, as different physicians and nurses may estimate differently. Hope this helps! Dr. B.
