As you both are thalassemia minor pt and have lost a child to thalassemia major, your wife should undergo chorionic villus sampling test at 10-12 weeks of pregnancy. This is an invasive test in which tissue from placenta is taken and fetal DNA analysis done. If the fetus is having thalassemia minor you can continue the pregnancy, if major you should terminate the pregnancy.
