  • I would definitely wait to see what the results of his CF panel is. Both parents have to have that altered gene to create a CF child.

  • We found out our DD is a carrier, i had already been tested, didnt have it, so they tested my husband and he was the carrier. So i dont think it would hurt to have him tested.
