    Hello dear. You need to know your genotype especially if you have a sickle cell trait (AS, AC) marrying a partner with a sickle cell trait too may result in a bavy with sickle cell (SS or SC). Height is genetically determined and will depend on if you inherit your genes from a parent who is short or tall. Height is usually attained by about 17years and may still continue in some for a few years more. All the best.
