Down Syndrome Testing

Dear Midwife,
I'm a bit concerned because my physician forgot to make me my appointment. to come in and do the testing for Down Syndrome (via a blood test, if I recall correctly) and now he says its past the time frame I can do so.

I am 26 weeks and did have my normal 20 week / second ultrasound done and they said everything looked good, no abnormalities, etc. However, I can't stop thinking that I should have had the blood test as well just to clear the air.
