Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

First of all, you can do nothing to "fix" this. While I think that leaving you a "message" is not appropriate care, it sounds like their level of concern is actually quite low. In terms of what this means, it actually is not a sign of anything bad, and if the baby's anatomy and growth are otherwise normal, then I would try not to worry too much. One thing that would help is calling your doctor back and asking for a person-to-person explanation stating that "your message completely freaked me out and I would appreciate an explanation of this finding!".

I hope that this helps and good luck! If you would like a more detailed or prompt answer, please consider the Premium Service.
