2 markers for down syndrome

I am pregnant with my 2nd baby and I am 19 weeks along.  I just had an ultrasound done last week and the doctor found 2 "markers".  One being in the small intestine and one being in the heart.  He explained to me that I am now at a high risk of having a down syndrome child, but he could not give me a percentage or any details.  I am 28 years old.  Has anyone gone through this??  I am depressed and have opted not to have the amnio done.  I just need a glimpse of hope.
