CVS Today Can T Wait For Results

Hi everyone. After nearly 2 years of trying, my husband and I were thrilled to find out we were pregnant in August. I'm 13 weeks today. Last Tuesday I had my U/S for nuchal translucency and had VERY good results. They said 1mm is the smallest they could assign, but ours was less than that. Great! So we decided to tell coworkers, friends, family. Then I found out on Tuesday that my blood results the same day showed that I have a very elevated beta hcg (MoM result) and very low Papp-a. They say that my risk is now 1:15 for Down's. So today I had my CVS test, which was VERY painful (transabdominal). They didn't get enough cells to do the rapid FISH test, so I have to wait 2 weeks. I'm crushed. I just have a little cramping now which I guess is normal. I'm not sure if we'll continue the pregnancy or not (please do not judge...I am just considering options right now and need to make this decision in my own time and way) but either way, we want to be prepared. Two weeks just seems like torture. Anyone else have these horrible numbers and still have a healthy baby? They did say the nuchal test was a good sign, but they had already factored that in...so still not great.
