Calcification on heart

I am so worried. At 21 week ultrasound my doctor saw a calcification on baby's heart. Because of my blood test and NT test that reveled a low risk for abnormalities, he said this marker did not change my good odds. He did not advise an amnio. But I am worried still. This calcification seems rare, so it is hard not to worry. He sees it in 1/100 babies. I feel like that is not many, but according to science it is. I have decided against a late amnio. But I still worry.
