Hello, Nothing to worry about. Also do your husband's thalassemia test. In case that is positive  then there is a cause for concern. In case his is negative, likelihood of baby having it is very low. You can have a normal delivery, no problem with that. Only if it is thalassemia major, is it harmful.
Next Steps
Husband's thalassemia test. Consult a hematologist with the report.
Health Tips
Continue taking Tab folvite one daily after breakfast till delivery.
