Pregnancy while husband is on arthritis meds?

My husband is on many arthritis medications, I know he does humira injections, and he has told me he is on 2 other (oral) medications. One he takes one once daily, another 8 times a day. I have been asking him to tell me what they are so I can look it up to be sure pregnancy would be ok but he hasn't gotten to that! I remember reading getting pregnant would be hard on a medication that was suggested to him and I remember something about it possibly harming the baby??
I know at times these warnings are there because they have to be, but aren't typical. I know this is a difficult question when I don't know the particular medications at this time.
Although we are careful I am quite sure I am pregnant, and need to know what to expect if a test is positive how to feel/go about things!! If there is a huge chance there could be a bad problem I don't want to get excited until we know everything is fine.

I have never heard of of medicines being transferred to sperm, but if you are truly concerned then contact your dr and let them know of your concerns.
