I haven't personally, but everyone I know who has had that happen to them was very scared and worried like crazy but in the end baby was perfectly healthy.
My sister had an amnio come back normal and then did have a baby with DS unknown because whoever ran the test didn't screen the fluid for DS!

It is very unlikely your baby will have any problems at all with a positive screen like that and no soft markers. Try to put yourself at ease until you know something is wrong. I know that it is so difficult to be thinking about the possibility of raising a child with special needs. I have 2 nieces and 1 nephew with special needs so I know the feeling of wondering if my own child will also be affected. It is scary, but honestly what can you do except love them and take it a piece at a time. Don't try and bite off too big an emotional chunk to chew. Just take right now and what you can do right now. All my love. Big hugs!
happy about life in general
