I am really curious to know if anyone has had an amnio and when abouts in the pregnancy and for what reasons??

I am 35, pregnant with my 8th baby but on pregnancy #12, and the dr wanted to do an NT to check on baby. Well it shows so far an enlarged NT of 6mm, I did give a small update on my Nt scan below. It left me at a 1;5 chance for downs.

Dr suggested I get an amnio, or this new blood test but the blood test costs $800. I don't have to have them done but they are recommending it since the detailed ultrasound in 4 weeks cant tell me much. It can tell me a lot but not what the amnio can.
Blood test can tell for downs and a trisomy I think 18. That's it, its like the harmony or verify. But it costs money.

Im scared to get the amnio. I have only spoken to one person who had the amnio done in real life and that person has a healthy baby boy, well hes 2 now.
