In brief: Your Choice
The decisions you make with any pregnancy go to the core of your own feelings, influenced by the information you have.
Any pregnancy has a 3-4% risk of some unexpected outcome. Down syndrome kids have higher health care needs & live a different life than others but live into their 60's. You can get more data with more specific testing later.Your comment leaves 98% that baby is not, work with that.

Depends upon how much of a risk taker you are; having a 98% chance of a normal outcome sounds like pretty great odd to me.
