Absent nose bone? Baby has Down Syndrome?

So my husband and I got a call 3 weeks ago that our baby's nose bone was absent. An absent nose bone is a sign of Down Syndrome ...a regular woman's ratio for a baby with Down syndrome is 1:10000 mine was 1:41 ...the babies nose bone was absent on two ultrasounds. We have been struggling, crying and praying for the past 3 weeks. We haven't shared it with any friends we have been dealing with it solely by ourselves. A week and a half ago we went to a specialist who originally wanted to do an amniocentesis (where they stick a huge needle into my stomach and extract amniotic fluid to test) but the miscarriage rate while having that procedure is high,especially this early in the pregnancy, unless you have an amazing doctor. My husband was against me getting that test done and I agreed with him. We opted to get the Harmony test which is a blood test that separates my DNA from the babies DNA and then counts how many chromosomes the baby has. By the grace of God this morning we got a call that the baby is perfect. Our baby is perfect. My testimony this morning!
