I recently found out that my baby has a 2% chance of having down syndrome

Hi im 21 yrs old and having my first child its a boy =) I recently found out that my baby has a 2% chance out of 100% of having down syndrome I know im a low case but im still freaking out about it!! I recently went for an amniocentesis on Wednesday and should now on Tuesday the out come. I was just wondering is 2% a high risk for my age?? Do a lot of people go through these test and their baby comes out fine, im just really scared and confused.

Answer: Hi,
This is a very low risk and you have a very good chance of the amniocentesis results being normal. Try not to worry too much you are doing everything that you can to discover if there may be a problem.
Best wishes,
Alex
