cystic fibrosis carrier

i am 14 weeks and just found out i am a carrier. my husband was tested yesterday and now we wait. i'm going crazy out of my mind. i wanted to know if anyone had this same situation and what they did to ease their mind for these 2 weeks (or possibly more). i'm worried because my husband is strictly european and i'm half asian and carry it which is so rare. i already have a daughter who is fine, but i did not know i was a carrier at the time. please offer some advise and outcomes to any similar situations.

My sister is a carrier, and her son is fine.  Her boyfriend doesn't have it either, but she said that they test her son once a year to make sure he doesn't have it.  I figure that it to catch it and treat if needed.  So I hope this offers some sort of comfort, I know probably not much but don't stress it out!

My step father has cystic fiborsis and hes 40 years old! Hes got lots of preoblems surgeries and in the hospital alot for infections but hes happy and living a wonderful life! If your baby gets it, theres nothing that you can do but make your child comfortable and live a hppy life. Worry and being upset will make it worse. Oh...i just saw hes not a carrier. Well congrats and im happy everything turned out good!. :)
