Down diagnosis with DE (pg ment)

I can't believe this is happening. My integrated screening came back with a 1 in 10 chance of Downs Syndrome. It just feels so unfair. I was absolutely, absolutely not even considering this as an option because my donor is 27 so there's only a one in 1,250 chance of having a Downs baby (as opposed to 1 in 40 or something at my age). I really don't feel up to all the health issues that can come with a Downs child, heart surgery, stomach surgery. It's just completely devastating. Could use some support.
