Sometimes this is heriditary. It may be possible to pick this up on ultarsound though it cannot be guaranteed.
In addition, if your legs are very swollen and there is venous stasis, you might be at higher risk for leg clots. As long as you inform you doctor so that the appropriate treatment can be given, it should be safe to fall pregnant.
