I know you won't believe it and you need to do whatever is going to bring you peace. BUT the NT u/s is so important. Please know that. Yes it is true that it is not definitive but it is an EXTREMELY GOOD indicator.
Btw, did you see Tanya's post below. She had worse odds based on the intial screening. I can assure you her baby is GORGEOUS and HEALTHY and PEFRECT every which way!!!
Have you met with a genetic counselor yet? You need to understand what these numbers mean and also have a clear understanding about how your age affects the numbers. Do you know that when they do these odss they base them on your age at time of DELIVERY - not at time of conception. For me I was basically treated as a 40 year old because I was due one month before my 40th. yet I conceived only 2 months into my 39th b-day.
Speak to a genetic counselor regardless of whatever test your OB wants to run.
