Could any of your children have a genetic disorder if you are a carrier of the gene?

In brief: Depends
A carrier implies a recessive gene, so each of your children would have a 50% chance of having this gene.
If your husband is also a carrier (recessive) then there would be a 50% chance of transmission from him resulting in a 25% chance of one of them having the disorder.
