Is this anything to worry about?

I apologize if I am in the wrong section, but I've seen similar posts here, so I thought I would ask. I had an ultrasound at around 17 weeks(about 2 weeks ago). The tech said it was a little early, but she checked and measured things. Said everything was fine, including the heartbeat. Told me to come back in 3 weeks for another ultrasound. I had a check up with my OBGYN about 6 days later(August 27th). She checked the heartbeat and did a portable ultrasound. Said everything sounded good and looked good. About 4 days ago(Sept. 4), I get a call from my OBGYN's office. It's some secretary telling me my results were in. She then said the OBGYN looked over the ultrasound and said everything looked great. Everything was developing normally. But she thought it may have looked like the baby's kidney's weren't producing much fluid. I was told she was referring me to a specialist for an ultrasound, but that they probably wouldn't call me to set up an appointment for two weeks. After I hung up, I felt confused and worried. I did some research and only found negative, heartbreaking outcomes. My question, though, is this: If there was anything to worry about, wouldn't I be sent to a specialist immediately? Wouldn't they be more worried something was wrong? And why did it take two weeks for the office to contact me after I had my ultrasound? I've been unable to sleep since this phone call, and I break down crying almost on a daily basis. I was told to wait for the specialist to contact me, but I feel like I should be calling them and demanding an appointment. Or that I should contact the hospital and see if they can bring me in for another ultrasound. I feel helpless and worried, even though I was told everything looked great. I even feel those fluttery movements you get before the baby really starts kicking. Does anyone have any advice? Is this something I should worry about? Has anyone gone through anything similar? I just don't know what to do or think right now.

Anyone have any advice? I am so tempted to call the hospital today, but I don't know if they'd do anything or not.

Sounds like you are worried. I dont have any answers for you but feel if it is worrying you so much, you should give them a call, even just to reassure you everything is ok. You need to be relaxing, ie no stress, so best talk to them and ask more questions to put your mind at ease. Wishing you all the best.

I know that where I go, if they see something is not right, they send me wherever they have to send me right away, maybe is not that bad, maybe is a mistake or something, but take it easy sweetie, I know is not easy but try
