Normal + Incest = ?

There is a woman that I love dearly and I want to pull the trigger on something more than we have now, but she revealed to me that she was a product of incest and I am afraid that if we conceive, our children will foster a larger percentage of developing issues. Are my fears logical? And is there a knowable percentage of chance in such a case? Any answers would be appreciated!

Get genetic counseling if you're worried. She turned out fine, right?

Thank you for your reply. Yes externally she seems fine. Her siblings born of the same circumstance were not so lucky.
