First Trimester Screening Results

I got my FTS results yesterday. I had the blood draw at 11 weeks and the u/s was yesterday. it was amazing to see the baby move its hands and legs and move around. We were elated. The nuchal measurements were good and they were able to see a nasal bone as well so everything looked good but when they combined the u/s findings with the blood work, my risk of down's and trisomy 18 went way up. I still have a negative screen and don't need to get an amnio but I am worried about the blood results. I have googled a lot about low papp-A levels and there is so much stuff. I am gonna try my best not to worry too much about it because a lot of women do get positive outcomes.
Here's a baby picture at 12w3d.
He/she is so cute already!
