"i'm pregnant 4 weeks. Before pregnant blood test toxoplasma igg+ >2000iu/ml(reference range<1.6), IgM weakly positive>0.6. Is it safe for my baby?

"i'm pregnant 4 weeks. Before pregnant blood test toxoplasma igg+ >2000iu/ml(reference range<1.6), IgM weakly positive>0.6. Is it safe for my baby?

Igg remains positive for your lifetime, but igm can persist for months to years. I would say that this new pregnancy is protected, but given the outcome of your prior pregnancy, you must discuss this in consult with a high-risk OB to confirm what I am saying! ...Read more
