Pregnancy With Thalesemmia Minor

mobelle - July 3

I have thalasemmia minor or trait and my husband and I want to try to get pregnant. My husband is also 1/2 Italian like myself and his mother and sister both have the trait as well. should he get tested for the trait before we try to conceive? I know that even if he has the trait there is nothing we can do to prevent our children from getting it. Does anyone have any advice on this for us?

you should get him tested b/c to traits defintely could give u the disease. but remember the odds 1 of 4 children will get the disease not all of them.
