slight shadow on fetal babies heart and nuchal fold of >6mm

Hi, I'm 36 years old and just had my 20 week scan. Got the results back of a slight shadow on the babies heart and the nuchal fold was >6mm. They said these are soft markers for down syndrome but try not to worry. They gave me another u/s and the results were the same for the heart but the nuchal fold was >5mm. They said the babies is the right size and everything else is looking good. But I'm still really worried.
Had the baby on the 30/01/08 a beautiful healthy baby boy named Harry. So anyone out there don't worry everything will be fine. Goodluck and god bless
