I am 40, dont drink or smoke. What could my potential odds be of downs?

It depends on where you look, but your age-related risk for Downs will be in the region of 1:100. However, if you decide to have the combined screening (nuchal fold plus bloods), this will be adjusted.

if you will be 40 at your expected date of delivery it's 1:85 for your age risk
41 years 1:75
42 years 1:55

I was 42 when I had my DS and the test came back 1:19000
