Welcome to HCM.
Cells do not cross the maternal fetal barrier. Your child in the womb will not inherit leukemia from you. Maintain a positive attitude and look forward to have a very healthy baby.
You should of course consult your oncologist regularly and follow his advise along with your regular antenatal checkups.
Wish you and your baby all the best.
