Depends: What would be more useful would be to see what your percentage of CD4 is; if the percentage has stayed stable, and you have no other symptoms, then you probably have nothing to worry about.

Viral load: I would be more interested in your viral load as this is the best predictor of the effectiveness of your medication.It is not unusual for CD4 to drop during pregnancy or an illness.Keep on taking your medication as prescribed.CD4 will rise and fall.Do your follow -up as usual.Your unborn baby needs you to stop stressing.
