Nuchal Transparency 3.5 with negative DNA

This is my second pregnancy, with the first daughter born healthy with a normal pregnancy. I went in for my 12 week ultrasound and they detected that the neck was measuring at 3.5 being larger than normal which is a red flag for chromosomal abnormalities or heart defects. I had already done a DNA test through Counsyl and tested negative for Patau, Edwards, Down and other Microdeletions. Everything else with the baby, minus the neck, appeared normal including the heartbeat. I am totally freaking out right now and wanted to see if anyone out there has had a similar situation.

My husband and I have decided not to go forward with invasive testing due to the fear of miscarriage.
