The baby is at high risk for congenital abnormalities, but will not transmit the disease to the father.
I suggest you go see your family doctor as he will be able to explain to you exactly what you need. But remember that the baby is protected from the outside as he/she is growing inside the amniotic sac. There is no physical contact with the unborn baby and the dad.
