    Factor V Leiden is a genetic blood clotting disorder. Unless you have it, it poses no risk to you or your baby.

    If you or your husband do not have Factor V Leiden, then your child will not either.

    What she said!

    If both you and your husband have been tested and it has come back clean, then you don't have to worry about that one. If an in-law has it and your husband doesn't, it would mean they are hetero Factor V Leiden and have passed the other (better)chromosome onto your DH.
