In brief: Yes. Talk to OB.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited genetic disorder. Prospective parents can be tested to see they are carriers and discuss with genetic counselor the chance of having child with CF if one/both are carriers.
Post-conception testing is also available. Talk to your ob. Here's link for additional info: http://www.Acog.Org/~/media/for%20patients/faq171.Pdf?Dmc=1&ts=20120518t1505423920.
