Sweaty palms and hands

My husband has excessive sweating palms and hands. His father is also found to have the same issue. I'm pregnant now. Are there any chances of my baby inheriting this disorder? Is there any way to find out whether my baby will have such a problem? Can we diagnose this issue? Will this issue be carried across generations?
