I am also a Thalessemic carrier. I only knew that i was a carrier after i was pregnant with #1. So long as hubby is not a carrier, baby will only be a minor and they will grow up normally. If i m not mistaken, my #2 is also a carrier based on her blood test results.
For thalasemic carriers who are pregnant, you may be slightly anaemic. So just build on the iron. Also, monitor ur blood pressure. If it is on the lower side, you may experience some dizziness.
I have FINALLY weaned my gal. No more bfging... Hopefully, her craving will not come back. it has been 4 days liaoz.. She still ask for it once in a while..n i simply substituted her with her favourite food like cheese, yacult, biscults, etc.
