Doc said large, fetal head could =down syndrome??

Hi all,
My sis had her 2nd ultrasound and her doc told her that her baby has a %10 chance of down syndrome because the body is measuring at 31 wks and head at 34 or 35 wks. Her doc said the chances go up even higher because she is 36yrs old. Everything else looks normal with the fetus. Her doc wanted to do an amnio on the spot, but my sister refused. She's extremely upset, as she's miscarried 5 times previous and never thought she could get pregnant again. Any one ever hear of this or had this type of diagnoses? Thanks
