First Trimester Screening came back high risk

I had my first trimester screening done and my results came back high risk for my baby having down syndrome. I am 13 weeks and was able to get in the day after I got the first results to do a more accurate test called the MatrniT21. Based on my first trimester results the nurse said I was still below a 1% chance, around 0.8% chance of having a baby with DS. One of my numbers was higher than the average but she still said it wasn't elevated high enough for her to believe that something is going on with my baby. I still had the other blood work done since it's none invasive and 99% accurate. I have to wait for 2 weeks to get the results back and I am so stressed and upset I don't know what to do. Have any other moms had something similar happen?

Similar experience (1 in 63 risk) here except I had harmony rather than maternit21.... all came back fine and I'm currently 34 weeks with a very lively and healthy baby kicking away inside. But I still remember the horrible wait for the results.... Keep as busy as you can to minimise worry time, stay away from Google and try to remember that even your "high risk" result still means you're much, much more likely to have a good outcome. There are threads on the ante-natal section with people going through similar waits so may be a good place for moral support. Good luck to you!
