high risk for down syndrome, trisomy 18 and 13

Hi all- I am 35 years old, 12wks prego and am waiting for cvs test results to confirm if the fetus has down syndrome, trisomy 18 or 13. My odds are 1 and 5. I had the cvs over a week ago, which was very difficult. They had to go in for a sample three times and still did not get a good one. The genetic counselor has told me the sample is very small and they are not sure if it is enough to get results. They are not even sure I can do another cvs because of the shape of my uterus. The only other option is waiting for the amnio. With the odds I am not even sure it is worth waiting for. The wait is killing me and with the risk so high I don't have much hope.

Anyone else gone through a similar experience?
