Chances of child with DS suggests what? What are the blood clots in amniotic fluid?

Hello, I live in UK and I am currently 2o weeks pregnant. I had a Down Syndrome blood test at 11 weeks +5 days. The test came back negative and chances of child with DS were 1:250. I am 33 yo and this is my 1st pregnancy. The Nuchal measurement was 2.9mm and my PAPP-A was 1.47MoM and B- hCG level was 1.28 Mom. On the recent scan baby s bowel showed as hyperechogenic and Dr. basically suggested that the baby will have DS and we should have amniocentesis . Current Nuchal Fold Thickness is 3.7mm. I am just looking for a second opinion because personally I don t agree with dr. statment. Specially that she also discovered blood cloths in amniotic fluid . Could you please advise? Thank you! Marta

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern if you do have down syndrome and you are pregnant 20 weeks gestational period, the chances of having down syndrome in bay is very likely, in my opinion you should consult the institute in you are that see such cases to confirm it, if this turns positive then this is up to you whether to continue the gestational period or not hope this information helps you have good luck.
