I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine going through what you went through.
I don't know much about anything but I'm not sure what steps you could of taken to minimize your risk of a downs baby.

As far as I know it all comes down to egg quality.  And you don't really have control over that.  You might want to go over to the preg 35+ board as those ladies (myself included) are 35 or older and ttc or pregnant and maybe are a bit more knowledgeable about statistics etc...

Good Luck,
